I found a really neat site that had this adorable tutorial for an easy and cute pincushion. The site is the Purl Bee and they have lots of patterns and tutorials on knitting and sewing projects. I love to just look through their different projects.
Above is my version of their pincushion. I used Polyfil for stuffing as I did not have wool stuffing and I used regular felt in place of wool felt. This would be a great project for a child/teen to practice their handsewing skills or if you just need some little gifts for girlfriends who sew. I purchased the fabric at Hobby Lobby and just loved the vibrant colors. If you decide to try the pattern and want to share a picture of your finished project, please email me a picture at email@example.com. I would love to see what kids and teens come up with too. Happy Sewing!
