A sweet little treat…


Everybody loves a cute pincushion.

Just for fun, we’re sharing this Sweet Liberty Tuffets pattern with you.  For you to make and do with as you please.

All you need are scraps or a charm pack or two.


Depending on which one you have, one will do as all seven of these Tuffets were made with a single charm pack of Bar Harbor (circa 2010) from Minick & Simpson.  The tuffets measure between 4″ x 4″ and 5″ x 5″.  Charm packs or scraps – all that’s required is a little bit of fabric.

If you’re curious about the pattern, it is now officially “out of print”.

Have fun!

  1. These are so cute. Tiny, tiny sewing pieces, but I just love these. Thank you for sharing the patterns!

  2. Thank you for the patterns for these “precious gems”. I can hardly wait to make a couple of them!!

  3. I love these pincushions! This post reminds me that I have this pattern and a stash of Minick & Simpson fabrics. So what am I waiting for?

  4. Are they paper pieced? With such small pieces it would be much easier to do that way? Either way they are adorable. I can see making some in the Grow or Brighten Up by Me and My Sisters.

    1. They’re not paper-pieced but several are pieced on a foundation using a seam allowance. Even with the small pieces, they’re easier to piece than you’d think – at least I found them to be so. 🙂

  5. Absolutely one of my favorite Schnibbles pattern ever. Thank you for sharing the pattern. Do you foresee developing any new pattern designs in the future? We are all waiting to experience the joy of a new collection of Schnibbles designs 🙂 – Carol

  6. Thank you!! The sewing group I belong to will have a Christmas exchange and these pincushions will make great gifts.

  7. There is something addictive about making pincushions; I love to look for old ones when I travel. Thank you for sharing your patterns with us.

  8. Thanks for the sweet treat! I do have the pattern somewhere, but now that it’s on my desktop, I will be able to find it–lol!

  9. Thanks for this. So nice of you and Moda. No sewing for me today as I’m suffering with Hermine and no power. At my local library.

  10. Thank you, Carrie, what a nice gift. I have so many of your patterns and all of your books. But I didn’t have this one until now. Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend.

  11. I purchased the pattern (and made a few of them) awhile ago. Not difficult and the results were adorable. Made several as my guild gift exchange gift a few years ago … well received! Thanks for sharing!

  12. Thank you!! So very generous of you! I think I still have some Bar Harbor in my stash, but they would look absolutely adorable in so many other lines as well. Good time to make up a few Christmas gifts.

  13. Thank you for sharing! One can never have enough pin cushions, and they make wonderful “just because I appreciate you” gifts. Have an enjoyable Labor Day weekend.

  14. How cute these are! I love make my sweet pin cushions for my quilt you friends. Thank you for sharing, you are the best
