Using a selection of companion prints, simple pincushions can turn into bright fun on a desk or in a sewing case. This set used solids and leaner designs in the center, bordered by bright colors and intricate patterns for the ends. Using squares of about 4 inches and scraps to mix and match ranging from 1 ½ to 4 ½ by side, lay out the pieces in a bright combination. After sewing the pieces side by side, fold in half lengthwise and sew the long seam together. Fill with crumbled walnut shells or sand.
