Pin Box Pincushions

I thought I would show you how I make these little pincushion boxes.
I use the brown papier-mache boxes that you can buy from craft stores. I paint them with a water based paint and leave them to dry.
You will need 2 pieces of fabric for the top and bottom of your pincushion, Filling, A button and a glue gun.

Slitting the back stuff with polyester filling

Hey presto a lovely gift for any of your sewing buddies.

If I haven't explained myself very well just leave a comment and I will get back to you.
Happy stitching.

  9. Your instructions are simple and clear, Sue. Such an adorable little pincushion! I don't take the time for little projects like this very often, but this one is too tempting to ignore. I see several in my future.
