Selvage Pin Cushions Make Cheery Gifts!

I made up this batch of selvage pin cushions to give as little gifts. They are about 3 1/2 inches square and stuffed with polyester craft batting. The backs are bright colored solid fabrics. Wrapped with satin ribbons, they look so festive!

Keep this idea handy for those times when you need a quick gift for some of your quilting buddies:)

What a fantastic idea! I have been saving my selvages and now I know what I will make with some of them. Thanks!

These are sooooo cute. Have to make some pincushions too. Started a workshop on monday and I asked the students to give me all their selvages. And they wondered what on earth I would to with this trash. i told them it was trash it was treasures.

To Carrie and May,

I hope you have a blast making these pin cushions!
Once your friends see these cool selvage creations they will be keeping their selvages, so it is smart to ask for them now! :)

P.S. We know there are enough selvages to go around!
