How To Make Pin Cushion


How To Make Pin Cushion


Tools we need :
* Scissors
* Needle
* Thread
* fabric material
* Felt
* dacron for filling

Cutting :
* Cut fabric one big circle, as big as a plate
* Cut felt, little circle

Cut a circle from your chosen fabric. The diametre large/small up to u. Me myself using a plate to help making the the circle template.

Fold edge of circle about 1/4 inch to the inside part of fabric, then sew it with a gathering stitch
(simple stitch which goes in and out of fabric)


Pull the thread
Fill it with dacron or natural cotton


Pull thread and tie off end of thread.


Now, to make the petal
Use the longest needle and long embroidery thread
Tie Knot end of thread, Stick the needle start from the bottom (center) of pin cushion through to the top (center) side
Pull it tight and then loop it around the cushion over to the bottom side come up through the center in the same place like before. One petal done.

Continue doing the same thing until u get 8 petals or more as u like.
After get all petals, knot the thread



For looking more neat, attach the bottom with circle felt, we can use hot glue or hand sew
