Here's a great resource for some inspiration! These gals have a great website, You Can Make This, where you can find all sorts of user based ideas/projects to make - including some free projects too. They also have a few sister sites too, one of my favorites is SWAK Embroidery.
They started a new blog/website called DIY Dish - here's their first video. Figured this my incite someone to do a little decorative cake pin cushion making!
Here's a link to their post with lots of pictures including a giveaway too!
