Needle & Thread Pin Cushion Embroidery Pattern

Today is a holiday and I had some time to do something fun and handy.
Since I do not possess a pin cushion, but a lot of needles that are dangling around all the time, it was time to make one.

Here we go:



Gather your materials:


Felt
Felt matching thread
Embroidery floss
Needle 
Scissors
Marker
Pattern (deutsche Version)
Batting


Print out the pattern and cut your felt accordingly. 
I used a straight stitch for the letters, the needle and thread and a satin stitch for the spool.


I also stitched a needle on the top circle


Once you stitches all parts as desired, sew the bottom and top left side together and make sure to leave the overlapping parts of the body open as shown below. Turn the project around to the right side.



Grab your batting and fill the cushion generously. Sew up the opening and enjoy your pin cushion!





Love, Viv
