Here’s what you need to make it:
8 pieces of fabric cut to 2 1/2″ squares (I fussy cut mine to show off the cute illustrations)
8 2″ wide by 10″ strips
1 yard of ric rac
Walnut shells & stuffing
To begin:Piece 4 of your 2 1/2″ squares together in a 2×2 format. Do this for both the front and the back of the pincushion.
Stitch your rick rack to the edge of one of your pieces. Just stitch right down the middle of the rick rack.Now lay your other piece on top, right sides together and stitch together, right on top of the stitching line you just made to attach your rick rack. Leave a 2″ opening to turn right side out.
Turn right side out.
Stuff with a combination of walnut shells and stuffing. Hand stitch opening closed.
To finish up, using upholstery thread, stitch a button to the center of each side of the pin cushion. To do this it’s easiest to first do a few stitches to “pinch” the pincushion, then add the buttons.
