Pattern Details

The Snap On Pin Cushion is a multi functional pin cushion that switches with you from machine to hand sewing. It has been designed to house your pins and hand sewing needles in an easy on the eye way. The felt landing strip is perfect for all your hand sewing needles whilst the rest of the bulk of the cushion can be filled up with all your lovely pins. It is paired up with its own base pad (pattern included) which can be attached to your machine in two ways, either over the top or round the right-hand body. It can also be set up with either magnetic snaps or sew in hook and loop tape. I designed this for my own lazy purposes as I was fed up of transferring my pins all the time from my walking around cushion to my machine attached cushion. I also liked the idea of having a feature section for my hand sewing needles and the ability to make it pretty. I wanted to keep the costs down and use up some of my nice scraps so I have made this purely from things I already had lying around. There are two versions of the base with the ribbon either feeding out vertically to go over the top of your machine or horizontally to go around the right-hand body. There are also pattern markings for either magnetic snaps or hook and loop tape (Velcro). Base – 3” wide 4.5” long, Cushion – 3” wide, 4.5” long 2.5” high
