Pincushions! The Square Pincushion

Pincushions are a project that I encourage my students to try and make on their own at home.  They are a great way to use up leftover fabric and it is an easy project for students to begin with in reading/following directions on their own to see how they do. 

Over the next few days, I will be highlighting some of my favorite pincushion patterns for beginner students.

Today, we are featuring the easy Square Pincushion....

As you can see, I use mine quite a bit. 

It is does not take much fabric at all, a little bit of rick rack (the white zig zag trim on the top which is optional), and polyfil stuffing for the inside.

Here is the link to the directions I put together if you want to give it a try: SQUARE PINCUSHION

This is definitely the easiest pincushion pattern that I have and would also be great for a child/teen who is interested in sewing.  =)
