A yarn pincushion

I'm still trying to bust my stash of 4 ply cotton and today I made this:
 
 
You can check out the pattern Ravelry.
 
It's really fast to make and I embellished it with a little umbrella button my mom gave me.

 
I need to find a few more projects like this to use up my stash of cotton  because I only have really tiny amounts in different colours left over.

  1. Can't quite see what you've done, is it knitted and then stuffed?
    Great idea though, a real novelty. I like it.

  3. Lovely pincushion!! Congrats on being featured !:)
    You can create crochet balls etc. and join them as decorative curtain. You can also create embellishments and use them later as required.
