Do you need a quick project? Or a fast gift for a quilty friend? These pretty pincushions are the answer! They are fast and super cute! And who doesn’t need more pincushions in their lives?
This pincushion is part of the Fat Quarter Shop blog remix. You can check out this YouTube video with Sherri McConnell and Kimberly from the Fat Quarter
Shop. They walk you through the pincushion tutorial with lots of tricks and tips along the way.
The first step is to create a little patchwork. I dug through my scrap bin and used up some of my favorite (and most hoarded) Bonnie and Camille fabric. Some of these pieces I have been holding onto forever, like that original Ruby!
Most quilters stuff their pincushions with crushed walnuts shells. But I am allergic to walnuts. So I needed to find something else that was nut free. I used poly pellets which worked great! They added a weight to the pincushion so it won’t move on my work table.
Now I have a pretty pincushion to use while I work! It really is cute as a button! The Fat Quarter shop sells the cutest twill ribbon with fun sayings to use on your pincushion. I also used my matching Bonnie and Camille Aurifil Thread to stitch this up!
So what are you waiting for?!? Grab your favorite scraps or a mini charm pack and you can make one of these too!
Thanks for stopping by!
