Pincushion DIY

This one I made by cutting two squares that were approximately 5 inches x 8 inches each. Then I sewed up three of the four sides (with right sides together). I then turned the "tube" right side out, stuffed it. I then sewed up the last side (by hand). For the finishing touch, I used embroidery thread that "divided" the pincushion into four parts. I hope that makes sense.

This is just a variation of the first one-- except I used two different kinds of fabric for the 5" x 8" sides.

This one I did by cutting four pieces of different fabrics. I'm not sure what the exact measurements on that are.

These would make a nice present for a craftsy friend. Add a packet of needles and or pins and there you have it! :)
