The pincushion is an essential part of any sewing kit, and this book offers 20 easy-to-make cushions that require only basic machine-sewing skills and can be shaped into practically anything.

Projects include a mini monster, a Union Jack pillow, a cupcake, a Christmas pudding, a Halloween pumpkin, a fried egg, a voodoo doll, a flat cat, a wristwatch, a magician's hat, and a heart. These clever pincushions will brighten up any sewing box or bag.
