The DIY Dish is up and running, and here is the very first brilliant project: an easy-peasy no-sew cake pincushion in felt, plus a variation using fabrics (very simple sewing).  

Aren't these fun?

Here's the link for the downloadable pdf with all the instructions (and more pictures).

If you go to the blog and enter their giveaways before 30th March, there are two Janome sewing machines and 10 pin cushion kits up for grabs! Open to non-US as well (but you do have to be over 18 years old).

Fantastic, no? And by the way, the twins are not related to Marie Osmond!

I'm definitely making one (or two) - so much better than the cracked plastic container with a bit of chewed-up sponge on top!


  1. Hi Susie -

    Weren't these cake pincushions adorable? I can see myself making them all the time - so easy! And they really do resemble the Osmonds - LOL!

  2. LOL. the girl in the white jacket DOES look a lot like a younger Marie Osmond haha. LOVE the pincushions, so cute. Thanks :)

  3. Yay, yay! I just need to find all that fabric.
