I finally finished it about 20 minutes ago. It wasn't like I didn't try to finish it in a more timely fashion but it took 3 starts before I came up with an acceptable version.
All it is is a square with a bow on top. My problem is that I took the tutorial seriously the first 2 tries and I just could not come up with a fabric bow that looked like the picture here. http://emilytaylordesign.com/pretty-parcel-pin-cushion-tutorial/
I'm not sure why it took me to try 3 before my brain kicked in and said just use a real ribbon. DUH!
Actually, if I do say so myself, I like it better and it was so much easier to do. Mine is about a 3 1/2 inch cube.
So Janita if you are reading this, your pincushion will go out in the morning mail.
