This is my favorite pincushion style.
The button dimples on the top and bottom make it sit nice and flat.
The two colors for the top and bottom are fun.
And the rickrack around the seam?
Rickrack always makes me smile. 🙂
Here’s the flip side of the same pincushion.
I’m still loving the Ed Emberley Happy Drawing collection from Cloud 9 Fabrics – it’s making my sewing room an even happier place. And you know I’m all about the happy. 🙂 This uses the frogs on one side, and the green scribbles on the other.
It’s an easy pattern – the hardest thing is packing in enough stuffing to make it really firm.
So download the free pattern and make yourself a pincushion – or three. I use three pincushions all the time – one on my cutting table, one by my sewing machine, and one on my ironing board. The cutting table (where I pin things together) pins tend to all end up in the sewing machine pincushion (where I unpin as I sew). When that happens I just move the full pincushion over to the cutting table and the empty one to my sewing machine and start the whole migration over again.
You could even make yourself a pincushion to match your sewing machine cover. Fancy!
