SOMEWHERE I've seen a pattern for a flower pot pin cushion and I can't remember where I saw it! Does anyone know where is was or how to make one? I remember that you use a small clay flower pot and you sew a flower (I think it was a sunflower) ...stuffed and applied to the top rim of the pot. It was really cute and I wanted to try that. If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it! TIA

Thanks, Gina. This isn't what I had seen before but I may adapt it to what I'm working on. I ended up just making my own pattern and I'm trying it out today.
Happy Easter!

I made one with my mom for a class of 8-10 year old girls she led.

We used a small la creme yogurt cup that we covered with felt (but you could easily use a flower pot). Then we found some really neat sunflower looking ribbon that we cut into lengths that we doubled over and hot glued inside the rim. We filled the bottoms with a little plaster of paris for weight. Then we had a piece of brown velvet that we had stuffed with steel wool and sewn closed that we put in the center to be the middle of the sunflower. They turned out really cute, and the girls gave them to their moms for mother's day.
