Whip up a bunch of these for quick and easy gifts!
Start with an eight-inch square of your favorite fabric.
Fold in half right sides together and stitch up both sides.
Fold in half the opposite way and stitch seams leaving a one-inch opening
on either side of the previously stitched seams.
Your pincushion should look like this:
Turn inside out making sure to push out the corners.
Fill with your favorite stuffing material. I used raw wool fleece for mine but you can also use polyester batting or even those popular crushed walnut shells.
After filling to desired 'stuffiness', ladder stitch the opening closed.
From two shades of green wool felt cut two leaf shapes, with one leaf slightly smaller
than the other. Stitch a center seam through both leaves.
both the bottom and the top of the cushion.
Find some cute buttons and attach them in the same manner, poking through the leaf into the bottom of the cushion and back up. Wind the thread around the top button a few times, take a few stitches through the threads and tie a knot. Clip thread.
