Scrappy Simple Pin Cushions


Sewing:

I realised over the weekend I don’t own a single pin cushion – I have needle cases, tins full of pins and snap lock bags full of pins but don't posses a single pin cushion. 

How had this escaped me? 

A perfect reason to make myself some and use up more scraps I thought!

I pulled out some of the cut-offs I had from my made in cherry quilt

I made up 3 sizes in a simple 4 patch pattern and backed them with the sweetest aqua spot flannel I had left over from Thom's Baby-in-the-hood jacket (except for the largest one) – the smallest measuring just 4cm squared and the largest 8cm squared.


I even stuffed them with leftover cut-offs of wadding from my quilts. To make them nice and firm I secured the centre of each pin cushion with a button.

These are just so cute – easy to make and make a great little present for anyone you know who loves to sew!

Happy sewing!
