181 Lil' Hooties pincushion set of three owls patterns
Pattern 181 Lil' Hooties pincushions come from a pattern consisting of 3 different owls . They are so cute and functional , the pattern has bottom pockets on front and back , small tummy pocket , wings with pockets , they are stuffed with wool and or poly fill and weighted with Crushed walnut shells to keep pins and needles as sharp as possible . I used about 9 colors mixed and matched and make all three (9) colors in quarters of wool felts or (12) colors in 1/8's should do it . Or create your own palette of colors and choose how many you want to use . We also sewed a pocket on their center bottoms that slips in a washer , this makes it attachalble to a magnetic bowl . A caddy is then created for pins , saftey pins needles thread snips , small scissors, thimbles , hemostats and on and on .
