Coffee Cup Pin Cushion – Free Pattern

I first created this back in April 2016. At first I was charging for this pattern. After some time, I have decided to add this, and ALL of my patterns to my blog for free. (Thankfully there aren’t too many of them). I do offer an AD FREE pattern for $1. You can find my ad free pdf files in my pattern shop. 🙂 to download this pattern, you can find it on Ravelry or in my shop.

Below you will find the FREE coffee cup pin cushion pattern.

  • Handle: sew top of handle to 1st round of hdc. Weave in end. Shape the bottom part of the handle to how you would like it then sew in place. *the best place for the handle is covering the “join”. Weave in end.
  • Saucer:  Sew bottom of cup to middle of the saucer with string left from the saucer. Come up inside the cup, behind the ridge from the “BLO” round. Continue around. f/o and weave in end.
  • Face (Optional): add small mm safety eyes, and create a smile with black crochet thread.
  • Heart: Sew your heart to the coffee top in a position you would like. I chose to sew mine off center.
  • Stuffing/finishing: Partially stuff coffee cup with poly-fil or filling of your choice. Fit your Top Piece to the cup and whip stitch the coffee to the inside loop of the cup. Leave approximately 2-3 inches undone to finish firmly stuffing your cup. When stuffed completely, whip stitch the opening closed.

Feeling the Love

loveblogI’ve been feeling the Love lately!!! And I absolutely adore it. I have been trying to get some things out & get things up and transition ALL of my patterns up on my blog, but that hasn’t happened just yet. I promise it will though. The last few days have been pretty rough for me. I’ve been sick & trying to finish up orders. I needed a break and figured it was the perfect time to get a graph out. I now present to you, inspired by the LOVE statue from the City of Brotherly Love, My Love Afghan. As promised in my previous post, this graph is 100% hand drawn. You can download this pattern from my Ravelry Shop for $1!! Click HERE to grab the pattern from my pattern shop. Information about the pattern is as follows:

Pattern requires:
Several Colors worsted weight yarn (Red Heart or similar)**
Recommended 5.0 or 5.5mm hook size (Your size hook & gauge will determine the final size of the afghan)

Finished Size (In stitches or blocks):
50w X 60h

Pattern Notes:

This graph is designed to be worked using either the Corner to Corner technique or using a bobble stitch. If you are unsure how to work these stitches, YouTube has some wonderful tutorials.

By downloading this pattern, I am assuming you have basic knowledge of creating graphgans. If not, please feel free to visit my facebook page (linked below) if you have questions or run into problems.

I hope you enjoy this pattern

New Years Resolution



I cant believe 2016 is coming to an end already! Its been a great year & unfortunately, I have not offered many patterns at all this year.  As a New Years Resolution, All of my graph patterns will be HAND Drawn. I will not be using any type of clip art or web images to clean up and graph to offer to you. I have tons of already premade images just waiting to be graphed for your use.

I will still take some requests, but they may take longer as I will be re-drawing them. I prefer to have my own work, rather than someone elses.

As another resolution, I am going to get these ideas out of my head and onto “paper”. I have several non-graph patterns in the works and I cannot wait to show them to you!!!

Now we say goodbye to 2016 & Hello to 2017!!!
