Cute little pin cushion

Updated: Aug 19, 2020




I decided one rainy afternoon to make a little pincushion that I could wear on my wrist to stop the inevitable pin drop and save my poor toes from further pain! The FIGO fabrics terrazzo collection has been calling me since is first landed in the Samantha Claridge Studio shop so this was a nice quick, satisfying project to use up a small amount!




It’s very easy so here we go…

You will need

Fabric ( I used the FIGO Terrazzo cotton)

Leather or pleather or thick felt

Elastic

Toy stuffing

Pins

Scissors

Sewing machine



Step 1

Cut out 2 circles in your main fabric (approx 10cm in diameter) and an oval shape in a thick fabric (leather is ideal…it’s just to protect your wrist when you stick the pins in the cushion


Step 2

Measure out a piece of elastic to fit comfortably around your wrist


Step 3

Pin the elastic to one of the circles of fabric, fabric right side up


Step 4

Sandwich your elastic between both pieces of fabric right sides together and stitch around the outside leaving a gap for you to turn it through


Step 5

Cut notches around the edge to give a smoother edge when you turn it through…


Step 6

Turn right side out and stuff with some toy filling, then slip stitch the hole closed




Step 7

Stitch the leather or pleather patch to the underside of the pincushion



Et Voila! This is a great stash buster project!
