I believe pincushions should be pretty as they are functional. Nothing fussy or overly complicated, they are meant to be enjoyed AND used. My handmade felt buttons that adorn most tops are a great place for your favorite needles as they wont push through (try doing that with a ordinary button).

All my pincushions are made using Kunin Rainbow Classic "Ecospun" felt, a 100% post-consumer recycled product made from used plastic soda bottles. Many people use wool, but I find I have a much wider color palette (50+ colors) with the synthetics - and unlike wool it’s non-allergic.
I am a Kunin featured designer.

About Jen Segrest:
------------------------------------

Jen Segrest is a graphic and web designer in the Dayton, Ohio area and she's an unrepentant Mac user.

In an attempt to make some little gifts for her pals, she has taken up making pincushions. Her popular galleries and tutorials on flickr have led to her designs being featured in a book from Lark Publishing called "Pretty Little Pincushions" in 2007 (Available on amazon).

Jen has a darling IT geek hubby, a dog and two cats and collects snowdomes. Basically, Jen spends every waking moment online doing one thing or another - and housework as little as possible.
