How To Make A Toadstool Pincushion Presentation Transcript

  • 1. How to:
    • make a toadstool pincushion
    • kootoyoo…click & stitch
  • 2.
    • Bread & butter plate, rice, kitchen wrap, toilet roll or cardboard tubing needle & thread, scissors, stuffing, embroidery floss.
  • 3. Step 2:
    • Position the bread & butter plate on your toadstool fabric & cut out a rough circle shape
  • 4. Step 3:
    • Cut out smaller circles of your contrast fabric (for the toadstool spots).
  • 5. Step 4:
    • It’s important to remember that not all of your toadstool fabric will be visible so you’ll only need a few spots. I like odd numbers but that’s just me.
  • 6. Step 5:
    • Using double thread, just do a running stitch around your toadstool circle.
  • 7. Step 6:
    • This is what it should look like when finished. Set aside for later.
  • 8. Step 7:
    • Now running stitch around your smaller circles.
  • 9. Step 8:
    • Once you’ve finished “running” around each circle add a small amount of stuffing to the centre of your circle.
  • 10. Step 9:
    • Gently ease both ends of the thread together just as you would if you were gathering or making yo-yo’s. Knot the ends together. You should have a nice puffy round shape.
  • 11. Step 10:
    • Repeat for each of your toadstool spots.
  • 12. Step 11:
    • Randomly position your spots towards the centre of the base fabric. I’ve just attached the spots using a simple running stitch but blanket or other decorative stitches would work just as nicely.
  • 13. Step 12:
    • Once you’ve attached all your spots your larger circle should look something like this.
  • 14. Step 13:
    • Add a handful of stuffing to the centre of your toadstool.
  • 15. Step 14:
    • Gently ease both ends of the thread together just as you would if you were gathering or making yo-yo’s. Knot the ends together. It’s important that your opening is smaller than your cylinder (you don’t want the stuffing to fall out).
  • 16. Step 15:
    • You should have a nice puffy round shape for your toadstool top.
  • 17. Step 16:
    • Cut your toilet roll/cylinder at about the 1/3 way point (2.5 – 3cms) so that your stalk is cute & stumpy. This will make the pincushion more stable so it won’t keep tipping over when you insert pins.
  • 18. Step 17:
    • Position your cylinder onto your stalk fabric. You want the fabric to comfortably go around the cylinder with a seam allowance of around .5 cm. The fabric should be about four times as long as your cylinder.
  • 19. Step 18:
    • With right sides together, pin your fabric around your cylinder.
  • 20. Step 19:
    • With right sides together, running stitch along the pin line.
  • 21. Step 20:
    • Turn your tube in the right way.
  • 22. Step 21:
    • Gently ease the cylinder inside your fabric tube.
  • 23. Step 22:
    • Slide the cylinder down so that you have about 1.5cm of fabric above the cylinder. Fold this to the inside of the top of the cylinder.
  • 24. Step 23:
    • Poke the fabric at the bottom of the cylinder up through the cylinder.
  • 25. Step 24:
    • Pass your needle & thread from one side of the fabric tube through to the other.
    • Wrap the thread around the fabric cylinder several times (between 10 & 15 times) & then make a couple of stitches & knot the end off to secure.
  • 26. Step 25:
    • Now your stalk should look like this at the base…just as if it were plucked from the earth.
  • 27. Step 26:
    • Turn your stalk so that the open end is facing up.
  • 28. Step 27:
    • Place a small amount of rice onto a square of kitchen wrap.
  • 29. Step 28:
    • Gently roll to form a sausage shape.
  • 30. Step 29:
    • Curve your rice sausage to form a donut shape. Ease around the centre of your stalk & inside the cylinder.
  • 31. Step 30:
    • Your stalk should look now look something like this.
  • 32. Step 31:
    • Trim the excess stalk fabric.
  • 33. Step 32:
    • Place your stalk onto your toadstool top.
  • 34. Step 33:
    • Stitch the stalk to the toadstool top.
  • 35. Done!
    • Cute & functional!
