I found this adorable pincushion on a Holiday Gift Guide from www.makezine.com for crocheted things to make. There was only an image and no instructions, so I went Googling for the answer.

I found this pattern that is a first-ever pattern for the person posting it, and she states the pattern is not for sale, but is free to use and you could sell the resulting pincushions. I thought that was mighty generous and decided to share the pattern here:
