If you have been reading my blog for long, you know that I love to come up with other ways to use patterns I have designed. The other day, I was sewing a Moroccan belt for my daughter to wear for international day at school, and I realized I didn't have a pin cushion! Laying the pins on the table proved to be dangerous, because they kept rolling off and were almost stepped on by my husband. I saw one of my daughter's bean bags lying around, and got the idea to use it as a pin cushion. It worked very well and looked very cute next to the sewing machine!
With 4 different circus balls to choose from you could make a nice little pin cushion for yourself, or to give as a gift. I also love the idea of this as a pin cushion for a child's first sewing box.
The "Cirque Du Crochet" bean bag pattern is available for FREE on Tangled Magazine's website!
