Easy Pincushion Tutorial
The Origami Pincushion is so easy to make that you don’t need a FREE Pincushion pattern to make it, you only need to follow the steps I share on the tutorial to make it!
1. Trace an 8″ circle in the wrong side of one of the two pieces of fabric with a pencil.
Run your sewing machine all over the pencil, don’t forget to leave one open space of 1 1/2″ to turn it out. Trim the circle with the help of a pair of scissors and make small cuts in the seam all around the edge.
2. Turn it out and push the edge out, press.
3. Trace a 3 3/4″ square in the center with a pencil. Run your sewing machine over the traced pencil line and leave an open space in the same side where you left open in the circle.
4. Put some stuffing for pillows in the square, sew by hand to close both open spaced, (the square and in the circle)
5. Take two of the sides and fold each one to the center and make two or three small stitches, don’t cut the thread.
6. Take the other two sides of the circle to the center and make two or three small stitches, finish and cut the thread.
7. Fold the corners to the back to make the origami flower. Sew a button in the center.
