My gift to you this Holiday Season.
This easy-to-make and fun-to-give pincushion is called Winter White.
I love to give homemade things and I know we all live busy lives so I designed this pincushion with that in mind. Its super easy and fast to make. The stores are filled with beautiful ornaments so I couldn’t resist adding this little dove to my pincushion.
Winter White Pincushion Pattern
One little clip-on bird or other ornament
Three squares of Holiday fabric 8 ½”, 6 ½”, 4 ½”
Three squares of Creamy/white fabric
8 ½”, 6 ½”, 4 ½”
Creamy/white print for the tie 3 ½” by 38”
Batting squares 8 ½”, 6 ½”, 4 ½”
Poly stuffing and poly pellets Craft size package
Step One - The Pincushion
Place the 8 ½” Holiday fabric square on top of the 8 ½” square of batting, right side up. Quilt as desired.
Once quilted place the 8 ½” square on top of the 8 ½” creamy/white fabric, right sides together. Using a walking foot, sew ¼” around the perimeter leaving a 2” opening to turn right sides out. Before you turn the square right sides out, be sure to clip the corners to get rid of the bulk, making sure you do not cut into the sewn line. Now turn the square right sides out. Firmly stuff with poly fill and plastic pellets to add weight. Hand stitch the opening closed.
Repeat these steps with the fabric and batting for the 6 ½” pin cushion and the 4 ½”pincushion.
Place them on top of one another with the 8 ½” pin cushion on the bottom, the 6 ½” pincushion in the middle and the 4 ½” pincushion on top.
Step Two - Tie
Fold the 3 ½” by 38” strip of creamy/white print in half, right sides together. Sew ¼” down the side and on a diagonal across both ends, leaving a 3” opening in the middle to turn right sides out. Turn and stitch the opening closed.
Wrap the Tie around the pincushions, and secure with a bow on the top and add your ornament.
From my sewing room to yours … I hope you enjoy this winter white pincushion!
