Le Challenge - Order: Hang it up Pincushion!

This is my entry for the Le Challenge #10 Order: the Hang it up Pincushion! A skinny pincushion with a pocket for scissors. Keeps pins and scissors at hand while sewing, but out of the way of little hands!






The beautiful scissors cross stitch pattern is from Issue 257 of the CrossStitcher.
