Pattern Description:

This adorable little pin cushion makes a wonderful gift for anyone who sews or wants pins close at hand. It is very simple to make and can be embellished in many ways. A little pattern for a simple felt glove or sunglasses is included. A bit of lace, a few inches of bead trim, or a snippet of scarf fabric can be sticking out from under the purse flap (which is sewn down).
Although I suggest filling it with crushed walnut shell for weight and firmness, you can use whatever filling you want.
This has been a really good seller that appeals to many ages!
Just about any fabric can be used!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • approximately 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" at base, 3 1/2" high


  • Fabric scrap at least 9" x 12", felt or batting scraps for lining

You Will Also Need:

  • crushed walnut shells or other pin cushion filling
  • scraps of bead or lace trim or other embellishments for bag
  • round bead or shank type button for purse flap decoration
  • glue stick
  • scrap of cardboard for base
