DIY Pin Cushion Patterns
Is there a holiday or special occasion around the corner? Pin cushions make great, nostalgic gifts that you can fashion with the recipient in mind.
And pin cushions can be almost free, as they can be made from scrap fabrics. In addition, you can also use things like leftover beads, lace, yarn, piping, etc. Since you can make your project in nearly any size, this is a great way to re-purpose your extra sewing materials, rather than just tossing them out.
Make your own pin cushions, using pincushion patterns.
As you’re shopping around for patterns that appeal to you, you’ll begin noticing some trends. For example, the time-honored tomato that your Grandmother had by her Singer sewing machine, appears again and again. While the colors and sizes may change, the pattern remains timeless.
You’ll also see items from Nature, like bird, bee and butterfly cushions. Here are some other themes that you may see:
- Flowers of any sort
- Pillows with button centers
- Fruits like apples and pears
- Aquatic creatures like frogs and turtles
- Old Americana themes like apple pie and roosters (weather vanes)
- Holiday cushions: Yule tree, Easter egg, Thanksgiving turkey
Pin cushions are quick and easy to make, and you can make several for yourself or give them as gifts. No matter what you do, you’ll get endless enjoyment from using a cushion that you made yourself, using one of the novel pincushion patterns.
