This isn't actually a pattern, but I saved the picture for the cute idea. This was actually someone selling the pattern to make these tape measures, but it could easily be adapted to be a cute pincushion.

I just saw the cutest pin cushion and I thought of you. It is made from an old pretty tea cup. The inside was stuffed tight with batting and then a nice piece of velvet covered it and was glued to the inside of the tea cup. Everyone has a pretty ole tea cup that they aren't using that would make a wonderful pin cushion. It has opened up a whole new project center for me.

My husband just broke the handle off of a pretty teacup the other day and I never thought of doing this. Good idea. I will have to remember this next time. I am sure there will be a next time.

I make needlefelted pin cushions. They are fun and fast to make. You can make all sorts of fruits, veggies, etc. Needlefelting is such fun if you have not done it. You can check out my website to see what I have done. I am not sure if the pumpkin is on there or not, but I made several of them for Halloween gifts to be used as pincushions. My website is http://www.JBsBirdsandMore.com. Hope this helps. JB

Your needlefelted pincushions are beautiful. It must take a lot of time and patience to do. Thanks for sharing.

Here is a picture of the pincushion that I made as Christmas gifts for friends last year. I have been looking for the pattern for you and just found it.
I hot glue little mint tins to the bottoms of the cushions to put needles, needle threaders, etc, the things that get lost amongst the pins.
They came out really cute.
I am going to mail you the instructions and if your address is not in the address forum, if you will dmail it to me I will send it to you.

That is a real neat pincushion and idea for the base. I think I can use that idea. I have a few small tins here so going to give it a try.

that particular one took two and a half years. Not a week end project. True dedication and patience.

It sure is pretty. I don't think I have your patience though. ;)

These don't look like they would be too hard to make:
