Ummm,

Oh yeah, I think that is the only rule.

I was originally inspired to do a pin cushion challenge when I saw a vintage rocking chair pin cushion sewing caddy during the She Who Sews sewing room blog hop. I thought these were so charming that I purchased several off the internet just for this occasion. However, that was a few years ago. Once I posted them on our Joy Studio Vintage Etsy Shop in anticipation of making them available to this challenge, they quickly began to sell.

So, it is any pin cushion that you would like to make.

I also fell in love with these vintage porcelain pin cushion tops and began the process all over again. Sold those also but tucked these away for myself and thought they were perfect for a Handmaids® project.

Now, about the giveaway part.

The PRIZES we are offering for this challenge are:

• Fabric

• Framed Print
