{FREE PATTERN} Acupuncture Pin Cushion

Hi all!!  

This is Mitchie of Miso Quilty :)

Thank you for visiting my blog!

A couple of days ago, I was thinking to make a pin cushion.

A pin cushion, something cute and funny that makes people grin :)

I love to make people laugh!   We all need humors in our life, don't we? :)

And I wanted to make something with Far East taste, since I am Japanese and I love our Asian culture.

So, here is it!

Acupuncture Pin Cushion!
Ouch! or "Mmm~ feels so good."

I used EQ8 to design the top FPP block.

I picked some cute scraps from my stash bin, (fun part!)

and started making the first one.

Then I posted my finished pin cushion on Facebook quilting group.


I loved the reactions from other quilters!

"LOL so funny!!" 


but the half of comments are like

"I thought it's a voodoo doll, stubbing someone from back, LOL!"

......Seriously, dear quilters!!? LOL!! 

Some quilters were asking me for where they can find the pattern,

which makes me sooo HAPPY! 

I was dancing in my head saying "Ohhh my goodness! They like my pattern"! 

I was not thinking about publish the pattern for this one.

So I made another pin cushion last night, to measure everything and write it down.

Ta-da~!  Red version!
 I think it turned out pretty!

It's funny that sometimes we get more positive reactions from audience when you weren't trying to get them!

Like, I spent so much time and effort on this new meal recipe for family, but my husband and our kids are like; 


But when you make something without recipe, using whatever leftover things in the fridge, they say;

"WOW, this is really good!  Can you make this again?"

I love when this happens, it tells me that my creative instinct is still good! ;)

And of course, this pin cushion can be made from your leftover fabric!

Now I am pleased to announce;

Thank you so much for the quilters those gave me the positive AND hilarious feedback! 

Hope everyone came to visit here will enjoy the pattern.

Love, xoxox
