Chicken Pincushions with Thread Caddy Nests



I love chicken pincushions, I modified the instructions here and here (I like prairie point combs and mine are bigger because I have so many 5 inch squares to use up) and made a few awhile ago.

My SIL won one at the family reunion. I was happy to see her using it when I went to visit. She had put it in a little bowl with some thread and it looked so cute because the bowl reminded me of a nest, which reminded me of another pincushion I had made a couple of.

I combined the two ideas.

My nest edges are pinked to eliminate binding and I used safety pins between the spools.

Wow, they are gorgeous. Was that an internet pattern or did you buy it somewhere. How clever. Would be a great Christmas present next year.

I love your chickens with the thread caddy nests. They are so cute. Do you have a pattern for them?
