How To Make A Simple Square Pincushion

  1. How to: <ul><li>make a simple & speedy square pincushion </li></ul><ul><li>(that looks a lot more fancy than it really is) </li></ul><ul><li>kootoyoo…click & stitch </li></ul>
  2. <ul><li>All we need for this super cute pincushion: is a square of fabric, your sewing machine (you can make it by hand though), a long needle, & some embroidery floss. </li></ul><ul><li>This one looks really special because of all the hand stitching on the napkin but I really like the frayed look too. Or, you could make it in reverse & have hidden seams. </li></ul>Other fabric options: -Hankerchief -Napkin -Old pillowcase -Worn out tablecloth -Lovely new designer fabric
  3. Step 2: <ul><li>Fold the fabric in half with wrong sides together. </li></ul>
  4. Step 3: <ul><li>Machine stitch along the short sides. </li></ul>
  5. Step 4: <ul><li>Use a ¼ inch seam allowance. </li></ul>
  6. Step 5: <ul><li>Now bring the two short sides in to meet in the middle as pictured. </li></ul>
  7. Step 6: <ul><li>From the centre point machine along one seam only. </li></ul>
  8. Step 7: <ul><li>Pin about an inch from the centre point so that you know where to begin your line of stitching. You can just use your eye – go on be brave. </li></ul>
  9. Step 8: <ul><li>Once you’ve machine the last seam your pincushion should look something like this </li></ul> See the opening here?
  10. Step 9: <ul><li>Stuff your pincushion. </li></ul>
  11. Step 10: <ul><li>Stuff the pincushion so it’s nice & plump. </li></ul>
  12. Step 11: <ul><li>Back stitch the stuffing hole closed. </li></ul>
  13. Step 12: <ul><li>Choose buttons for the top & base of the pincushion. This hides the point of the seams & helps the cushion to sit nicely. </li></ul>
  14. Step 13: <ul><li>You need a big long needle so that you can get easily through the thickness of the pincushion. </li></ul><ul><li>Hide your knot by entering the cushion at the edge somewhere & bringing the needle out at the centre of the back of the pincushion. </li></ul>
  15. Step 14: <ul><li>Then pulling the knot firmly but slowly through the pincushion until you feel the resistance at the centre point. </li></ul>
  16. Step 15: <ul><li>Just make a couple of stitches at the centre point before you sandwich the cushion between your buttons. </li></ul>
  17. Step 16: <ul><li>Once you’ve sewn the button on securely, bring your needle up at the bottom of the cushion. </li></ul>
  18. Step 17: <ul><li>Wrap the floss around the button a couple of times & knot off. Snip of the floss nice & close to the button. </li></ul>
  19. Finished <ul><li>You’re done! </li></ul><ul><li>Absolutely, positively cheater craft. Super speedy & super cute. </li></ul>Copyright © kootoyoo 2009
