Someone did suggest I add batting to the hulls when filling the pincushions. I was afraid they would be lumpy. Buying the hulls in bulk makes them not so expensive.
The Christmas embroideries come from Gail Pan's Christmas Patchwork Loves Embroidery book. Now these designs weren't designated for pincushions but I utilized them for that purpose.
The regular embroidery patterns are from Gail's book Patchwork Loves Embroidery.
There were a total of 14 pincushions made. It was so much fun to make something that sewed together so fast! A nice change from working on quilts that take much longer.

They all look lovely. Well done
They are so pretty! Very nice!
A great use of lovely stitchery! I have used light batting just behind my stitchery before filling with walnut hulls. It seems to work great for me!
They are all so pretty! Gail Pan has so many cute embroidery, and this was a lovely use of the small stitchings. :-)
These a pretty little pincushions I am sure they will be very popular.
I am enamoured with all your pin cushions... thanks for inspiring me Gretchen with your needle work! Excellent job :) Kathi
