"Want to make an adorable pincushion with me? I have never been a big pincushion gal until I started using a pincushion. Holy smokes. And why not have a sweet little chicken pincushion? I can have a whole flock without noise, feathers, smell, coop, or HOA restrictions! Side question: Is it a chicken if it doesn’t lay eggs? Mine definitely do not lay eggs, so maybe these are rooster pincushions? We can overthink this on another day."

NotesThis fun, practical pin cushion can be made from fabric scraps in any color. They are incredibly quick to sew and make fun party, retreat, or neighbor gifts. Enjoy a whole flock of pin cushions using this easy tutorial.
