Good second option!

I love the ceramic pin cushions, but they are so hard to get! This is the second best option... make my own! I have made 10 of them for the upcoming retreat. THEY ARE SOOOO CUTE. Pattern is nicely illustrated and easy to follow. I would recommend... putting interfacing on the fabric pieces, cutting a piece of plastic (like a lid from a cottage cheese container) for the bottom of the people before stuffing, popping open the back seam more (the face and hat area), to make the turning/stuffing hole bigger. And, even if you do not properly scale your printer to the 1" scale on the pattern, they turn out fine!
