Pincushions

Hello again! I'm back with some tutorials for pincushions. I think these are so much fun to make and they are so cute to display or give away! Pincushions make a fast and easy craft and are great for using up your scraps.

Here is a cute little patchwork cushion from paper.string.cloth.

Craftstylish has an article about making pincushions that you can embellish with embroidery. Check it out here.

This pretty cushion is put together by hand - a relaxing craft to do while watching your favorite TV show perhaps???

I adore Heather Bailey's fabrics - I ordered a whole bunch of Freshcut so that I will have it before production stops - I might make one of these little guys up in my favorite colors from the line.

Tiny pincushions from one of my favorite blogs - How About Orange.


Last but not least, I have a tutorial from the Queen of Craft - Martha Stewart! This one is for a teacup pincushion using felted materials. Great for recycling your old sweaters!

Enjoy!
