Curly has a pin cushion project in her 4-H project book. We saw some pretty fabric flowers arranged in a flower pot online. We had the idea of making a pin cushion version with the directions and tips in the 4-H book and a simple flower pattern found online. We made ours in two sizes for variation. Curly is quite thrilled to have taken the lead in this Tuesday's Tute. Giving others directions is one of her strong ;) points.
