My pin cushion is in Make Modern Issue 18!

This month's Make Modern issue has a gallery of pin cushions - and mine is in the pinnie parade!

Make Modern Issue 18 

I made this pincushion by gluing a handmade pincushion tree into one of my boys' toy trucks.

I love the whimsy of this pincushion! It reminds me to embrace and enjoy the stage my boys are in as it won't last forever! I'm thinking I might need a dinosaur one soon too.

Have you discovered Make Modern yet? It's a digital only magazine delivered right to your inbox. The quality of the content is SO good! My Fruit of the Spirit quilt was in Issue 17, and I hope to have a few more patterns in upcoming issues too!

  1. What a fun idea! We are just going through some of our son's things and this may inspire me! Some things are bound to go, like "Snaily" made out of a crayola clay, but maybe it can be salvaged for a Christmas ornament!

  2. Wow! That is awesome Laura, Congratulations! I love that the truck is antique looking and bright shiny red. Very clever pin cushion indeed:)

  3. Just too cute! Is this a hint that it'll soon be time to cut that Christmas tree ??!!

  4. Love your pincushion tree and it's delivery system, too cool!!!!!!

  5. Laura, you are creative!!! I can see why the boys would want to play with it. You might have to make them one too or a set of trees to play with but keep the pins for yourself.
