Hi and welcome. Today is the first day of the pincushion parade blog hop hosted by Crystal of www.daybrookdesigns.com. I am so excited to be a part of Crystal's very first blog hop that she is hosting.
As a seamstress and quilter, I always need pincushions. I use them at each machine and on my cutting table and at work. I even keep some in the boxes of projects I am working on, so that they are easy to grab and go.
Today, I am sharing a very fun and easy pincushion tutorial with you.
You will need -
4 - 2 1/2" squares
1 - 4 1/2" square
Some fiberfill or crushed walnut shells
Needle if You want to hand sew it.
Start with you 2 1/2" squares and sew 2 together, right sides together on one side.
Do the same with the last 2 2 1/2 squares.
Sew your square to your 4 1/2" square leaving an opening on one side to turn and stuff. (I leave maybe 2" in the center of the seam open.)
Turn right side out and stuff. I like to use a knitting needle, a pen or pencil to help me stuff it. I usually use fiberfill, as I have it on hand.
Sew the seam closed and you have a fun pincushion.
These make perfect gifts for birthday a , Christmas or I was just thinking about you and thought you would enjoy this.
I have at least 2 more pincushion to share with you during this blog hop so I will be back later in the month to share with you.
