Everyone who sews needs a pin cushion so I thought it would be the perfect first project to share.
This is super easy and you don’t need too many supplies.
Let’s get started.
The supplies for this project are 1 medium sized piece of felt, something round to use as a template (we used a mason jar) thread (we use perle cotton thread), needle, scissors, stuffing (if you don’t have any you could just use some cotton balls), marker or pen.
Step 1. Fold felt in half
Step 3. Pin the two pieces together before cutting.
Step 4. Cut out, just outside the line.
Step 5. Flip over the piece with marker on it to hide the marks.
Step 6. Thread needle and tie a knot in the end.
Insert pins and now you’re ready to sew bigger projects!
You can make a pin cushion in ANY shape you like. A circle is the simplest but you could make a heart, star or the first letter of your name! Get creative and make a bunch!
Please send me a picture if you make one. I would love to see your project.
I got this picture emailed to me from brother and sister sewers Jacob and Sarah who saw my post and here’s their pin cushions and much more! They’ve taken this technique and used it to start making their own plushies! This is so fun and exactly why I’m doing this! Sharing our creativity is the best. Thanks for sending me the picture guys! Keep sewing and creating! If you’ve made something from one of my posts and want to share it please send me pictures!
