Hello! Some of you may remember the pincushion I made for Halloween. I had a request for a tutorial on how to make them so I thought I would make a Christmas version.
Again I'm using the tea dyed muslin that I purchased at JoAnn's. It is such a nice color.
I drew a circle using a saucer as my template. There will be two circles.
I then had Lindsey stamp a Christmas image on one side with pigment ink.
With right sides together, stitch around circle 1/4" from edge, leaving a space for turning.
Turn right sides out and fill with fiberfill as full as you can get it and sew closed.
Choose a button. Thread a long needle with doubled DMC, I used the color 321. Stick needle up through the center and through the button. Now go back down through the button and out the bottom. You'll now bring the thread around the sides and down underneath the button.
