Gifty Galore Free Pincushion Pattern

Here is our Free pattern for the month of September! Yes, another pincushion! This is a
larger pincushion and personally I like to have a large pincushion by my
sewing machine to gather all pins. That way, as I remove my pins from
whatever I'm sewing, I can easily make it to the pincushion without
taking my eyes off my sewing!

It started out as just a plain star but as it took shape and the decoration was added it took more of a "Starfish"
look to it. So, quickly people started calling it a starfish and every
time Judy walked by my desk while making the "Starfish" pincushion she
started humming "Under the Sea" from the Little Mermaid movie! Enjoy!

I have to jump in on this one. There were SO many comments here at work, on Mari's cute little star that I started writing them all down.

In addition to Judy's humming, she thought it looked like a sand dollar star fish and wanted to put suction cups on the bottom.

Brett said “is it a star fish tree topper?…oh it’s too heavy for that – what in the world would you use this for?”

Mari said “It’s a star pincushion”, and then in her next three sentences called it a star fish.

Teri called it a wonky starfish – Mari keeps flattening it and Teri keeps fluffing it. Teri also picks it up and makes it talk!

Teri, "When you took the photo of the two together – it looked like they’re holding hands. Maybe they’re ready to go make baby starfish? (note, we didn't use that photo.

Mari – "they remind me of Patrick on SpongeBob SquarePants – only not pink".

Judy then changed her song – now it’s "Who lives in a pineapple under the sea – Sponge Bob" blab la bla

Anyway, I thought we had too much fun with this one - had to share!

OOOHHHHH AAAAHHHH! My mom lives in Florida and she was telling me that she needed to get going on her sewing again. She hadn't sewn in so long she had to look in her book to figure out how to thread it! Maybe a quick little gift of a new pincushion will help her get going!!!
