Cause I don’t know how to “backtrack”…LOL

P is for Pincushion

My Favorite Pincushion Chicka

A pincushion post would not be complete without mentioning my dear buddy, April aka Momosclothes.  Scroll down to the bottom of her Ebay ME page to see some of her beautiful pincushions.  Pictured at the beginning of my post is one of the first ones I received from April…so beautiful!!!

Off to the sewing room I go to pick out some pink and black fabric for my pincushion…



  1. I love pin cushions and I plan on making a new one. Thanks for the great link ideas. This 30 day plan is awesome and I wish I had time to jump in on it – maybe I can catch up on the weekends….

  2. Hey Esther! I’m already behind on both my projects.

    I’ve made the majority of the pincushion…just need to sew it closed, wrap the embroidery floss around it, and finally add a button to the center.

    I’m hoping to get started on my apron tonight…because I don’t really want to always be the last one to the party…KWIM? LOL

    With friendship,

  3. Oh I have such sewing-envy (is that a word?) right now it is not even funny. If I were to try and make that It would be held together with hot glue and duck tape……I work with paint, and um did not have the patience with sewing, sigh.

    Beautiful pin cushion though 🙂

  4. LOL Jamie…yes, there is such a thing as sewing-envy!

    Don’t don’t be jealous…my pincushion probably would have looked a little better if I used my glue gun as it’s not exactly what I would call ROUND…haha!

  5. Sorry, I didn’t read the pincushion tutorials…I am just WAY to ADD for that! Is it wrong if I make my pincushions from a yo-yo? I got the same result as the pictured one, I made the yo-yo then stuffed it like a pillow and hand stictched a non-stuffed yo-yo to cover the bottom. I just can’t follow patterns to save my life so I have to make my own. I do use commercial patterns for pull on pants or peasant tops, I just throw away the instructions first!!!

  6. LOL Phobiamom…that’s the basic concept, so it will certainly work.

    I must admit I never really follow directions as I usually have a quicker or better way to accomplish the finished results.

  7. Great lists – I’m going to have to bookmark these.

    I’ve just made up an apple pincushion tutorial – I thought it was about time i stopped keeping my pins in the plastic box they came in (with a rubber band wrapped around…)

  8. Thanks for all these tutorial lists, I need the inspiration. As for pincushions, i just put a tutorial on my blog for making an apple pincushion- very easy for beginners like me as the shape is very forgiving…

  9. thanks Lil’ d…I’ve added your adorable apple pincushion to the above list of tutorials!

    With friendship,

  10. Hello All, I’m looking for a turtle pin cushion pattern. Can someone point me in the right direction?

  11. Thank you Stick a pin in it for the great list of pin cushions tutorials
    awesome job!
