Tin Pinkeep Pincushion Pattern

Create this charming pincushion, or a collection of fabric balls, by English paper piecing!  The pattern gives all instructions for making the fabric balls, and includes the pentagon papers for the smaller sized fabric ball.  Use larger pentagon papers to make larger sized fabric balls.  Make them in both sizes and fill a bowl with them!

Drop the smaller size ball into an old, vintage Jell-O tin for a unique and charming pin cushion (not included.)  [found at antique shops.  I also have a limited supply of kits for this pattern.  Check out the Notions and Kits tab.]
