Have you seen this little pin cushion attached to my sewing machine?

It’s the epitome of ugly and sad. The color is terrible. It was supposed to be a jigsaw puzzle piece but it’s not really clear. And that ribbon! Ugh.

So I whipped a new one up in just a little less than thirty minutes. There really is no need for a tutorial but I felt like taking photos. So…

1) trace the shape of your pin cushion. mine was round. i used a bowl to get the shape.

2) prepare ribbon or string of equal length

3) pin parts together with ribbons at opposite sides

4) sew and leave a gap for turning inside out

5) feed with fiberfill

6) handsew shut

7) ready to be attached to its new bestfriend

And here is Lorelai’s new bling:
