William Morris Sunflower Pincushion

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic hand sewing

Pattern Description:

I was asked to design a project for the iPhone app, How.Do, in honor of William Morris' birthday. William Morris was a founder of the mid-19th century to early 20th century Arts & Crafts movement. I chose one of his sunflowers as a model for the pincushion and I used upcycled materials because, well, that's what I do.

It's easy and beautiful and wool felt materials are easy to find online.

This download is the template for the inner and outer petals.
