Since setting up my new sewing table and arranging my sewing area, I decided I needed a new pincushion.
I had this beautiful fabric, some matching trim
and quite a few buttons. This fabric looks good with just about every color!
I cut two pieces out of the fabric:
These measured 5" x 5". I allowed for a 1/2" seam allowance on all sides.
Once I sewed these together, I filled it with some poly-fil, added the ribbon trim and buttons. I hand stitched down through both the button on top
and the button on the bottom. You can see that I just folded the raw edge of the ribbon underneath the bottom button and sewed right through it to keep everything in place:
This little pincushion is working out really well and I think it looks great on the sewing table too:
