~ Simple Pin Cushion with a Granny Square


I made a few pin cushions like this before and love them. I just thought it would be lovely to share if any one of you like it as well and would want to make...


So here is how it's done:

Sew a tiny pillow with a scarp of fabric, it's about 2.5 inch square. Stuff it with some polyfill or some unused yarn like mine. Either will do.

As I'm working on my Flower Blanket so I made a square with the same pattern. You can make any pattern of square that you like. This one is an 5 inch square.

Turn the wrong side up and place the small pillow on like this:

Fold all 4 sides toward the center...

And sew seams across.

Turn your work. You have done a pin cushion with a granny square! Another way to make pin cushion. Super easy just in 5 minutes! Simple but still lovely.

Pin me!

Small, neat and pretty pin cushion...

Hope you find this helpful in some way.

Thank you for stopping by.

You have a great week ahead! x

That is absolutely adorable. How come I can't think of things like that? I don't sew very well, but I'm sure I could sew together a wonky little pillow that would be good enough for covering with a pretty granny square. You sure sewed up the back neatly. Will give this a try soon. Take care! Tammy

RobinSparkles said...

Hi,

Could I ask you what yarn and size crochet needle you used to make this? To you have a tutorial on how to do this? I have only seen how to make granny squares with 4 in the middle, not 8. I love it! :0) Thanks
