Easiest Pincushion Ever

Fabrics: Vintage Made Modern by Amy Barickman for RJR Fabrics

 

You're just four stitch lines away from a super easy pincushion. It makes organizing your pins effortless!

 

 

Materials for One Pincushion:

  • 2 -- 5" squares of fabric
  • Polyester fiberfill
  • Pencil

 

Finished pincushion: 4-1/2" square

 

 

Assemble the Pincushion:

 

1. Layer the two 5" squares with right sides together. Pin pieces together.

 

2. Beginning in the middle of one edge, sew together pieces with a 1/4" seam. Pivot at each corner. Leave a 1-1/2" opening for turning along one edge.

 

3. Clip corners just outside of the stitching line.

 

4. Turn right side out. Use the eraser end of a pencil to push out corners; press. Use a pencil to gently push small tufts of fiberfill through the 1-1/2" opening.

 

5. Using a needle and thread to match fabric, hand-sew opening closed. See how to sew the opening closed here.
