Since I'm thinking of PINCUSHIONS, I've been doing a little research and found all these wonderful sites that have patterns available and/or images of ones that are so cute.
So if we decide to do a swap, we've got the ideas!!
And the last one had a suggestion I'd never heard of--walnut litter for stuffing!! You get the walnut shell litter at pet stores, it's reptile litter. Supposedly, it is heavier so cushions will sit without falling over and it also sharpens your pins. I think I may go get some and try it out!!
