Crocheted Pin Cushion - Fast and Easy!

Terri over at Purple and Paisley seems to find all sorts of fun little things out there, and this little Crocheted Pin Cushion is one of her most recent finds. She discovered it on Liselotte's website which is completely in Danish.

Here's my version of it...

Crocheted Pin CushionFor the top, I used several leftover scraps of cotton from the washcloths I've made recently...

The buttons I used for the top and bottom middle were on their way to the trash on an old beach cover-up that had seen better days. I saw them sitting there in the trash and thought what a shame to waste such colorful buttons just because the item they were on was no longer usable. So I just ripped them off the fabric and saved them from an untimely demise! No sense throwing away good buttons!

Coming up soon, I'll be showing another useful tip for knitting lace, a video tutorial on a fun crochet pattern, and a look back at Tunisian Crochet with a few more variations to add to your repertoire.

Happy Stitching!
