Knowing that my students were making a wonderful meal for me, I wanted to give them something as well. I figured pin cushions would be an appropriate gift for students of patchwork. Besides, there had been some confusion over whose box of pins was whose during class, so custom pin cushions would be practical as well!
I used more of the fabric I designed myself; taro for purple lover Amber, brown lilikoi and stripes for bohemian Julia, and kukui nuts for our guy Jason. Simple to make, and no more mixed up pins.
