First Friday Freebie #29

The dog days of summer have arrived and so has the First Friday of July!

My obsession with pincushions continues this month. 

After posting the photo of a pincushion that I designed for my swap partner in THIS post, several of you asked me to share the pattern so I decided to do so for this month’s First Friday Freebie.

Use your imagination and make each pincushion uniquely yours.

Have fun and most of all, enjoy!
