Anyone who is sewing knows that a pincushion is essential to your day to day work. Well, this blog is about how novelty some pincushions can be and bring a bit more smile into your sewing rooms.

It is amazing what shapes the pincushions can be. I was browsing Etsy and Folksy for some ideas and there are hundreds of them. Most of them are absoutely beautiful and very innovative. See yourself, what do you think?
