Pin cushions for you and me and everyone



When I can't seem to have focus enough to make a quilt, lacking the time and concentration to cut fabric for a new project or just can't seem to get into my studio at all because of chores and life, then I make a pincushion.

These darlings are so delightful to make. You find a scrappy piece of fabric and match it with another. You cut a little bit and sew the fabrics together. You stuff, stuff, stuff until the cushion almost explode, hand stitch a few stitches to close.Add some Pearl Cotton thread and buttons and - VOILA!

All of these pin cushions are listed in my ETSY shop now. And I have more waiting to be finished... Making pin cushions has become an obsession... You could say I have enough pin cushions for you and me and everyone who wants one. If I don't make big pillows I make small... Pillow queen I am.

  2. So cute! Do you stuff your pin cushions with batting or scraps? I've been thinking about trying to make one and using up little pieces saved for no particular reason but I was afraid it might turn out lumpy if not done carefully.

    Have you tried it this way before?

  3. I love your little pincushions, they are gorgeous. I have seen similar ones to these, but yours are lush. I am also going through a bit of a pincushion phase right now. xo
