There are standard tomato pincushions, but if you want something really different check out this collection of 12 awesome DIY pincushions!
When I was young, my mom was a big sewer. She’s been sewing all her life. I remember a thimble collection that she had displayed on her wall that always intrigued me.
My mom also had one of those tomato pincushions . . . that always disappeared because we would play with it. We may have even lost it once or twice, or maybe even dumped all her pins all over the floor. I’d like to make it up to her though – with a cute, unique DIY pincushion!
A woman as special as my mom definitely deserves something unique. In my quest for “different” pincushions, I found several that you will fall in love with – I did. If you’d like to see the great projects I found, just scroll down. Which is your favorite?
