How to make a pincushion



That's how your work should look. (3)

Turn the stitched fabric "inside-out" so that the back of the stitching is now on the inside. To do this, take the side of the stitching opposite the opening and push it through the opening. You may need to use a Point Turner to push the corners out completely. Iron flat with the stitching face down.

Fill the ornament with Fiberfil from the opening left in the bottom. For a flatter cushion, use less filling. To create a fuller cushion, add more filling.
After adding the desired amount of filling, (add a ribbon loop or hanging, if desired) slip-stitch the opening at the bottom edge together.

To give your pincushion an elegant look you might like to add a cord around the cushion and/or a tassel.
