Gorgeous Little Scrappy Patchy Patchwork Pincushion

May 6, 2012

I don’t follow many bloggers, but I love, love, love the ones that I do, and Oh Sew Tempting is one of my favourites – she’s got some really clever ideas and makes beautiful things. A while back she put her mind to her scraps, as you do, and came up with a wonderful pin cushion tutorial. You can buy the pattern here at her Etsy shop, and you can see the fruits of my labour here;



I used the opportunity to cover my own buttons for the first time too – which was a lot easier than I was expecting. Isn’t it just lovely (if a little bit wonky – due to my laziness, not the pattern!) ?

    Wow! You did a great job. I love your covered button idea. I tried it once and failed miserably. Kept cutting the fabric too small. Thanks again for the link 🙂 Avis x

    I want to make a pin cushion, but have no idea what to fill it with… what did you use for yours?

      I just used regular polyester hollow fibre stuffing (because I had some to hand). I imagine you could use a combination of scraps of material, cotton balls etc – depending on the weight you want it to be.

Thanks for stopping by. I love reading your comments - good or bad, so feel free to leave me one here...
