Looking Out Pincushion Tutorial


Happy Wednesday!
Today, i would like to share a cute Pincushion Tutorial.
I call it "Looking Out"...
Skylar says is a cheesy name and makes no sense.. >_<"
Anyway, i find it rather cute! and just in case, i shall briefly explain.. 
It shows a window frame and looking out, it is actually raining. 
So does "Looking Out" make sense to you? ^^
I still have some leftover fabric from my Cherry Christmas.
I'm going to make another "Looking Out" and this time it will be a snowing one! 
This is sooo addictive! hee!

Materials Required for a 4" x 4" Pin Cushion :
Note : Using 1/4" seam allowance throughout

Step 1) From your 1.75" square print fabric and 0.8" x 1.75" white fabric, sew them together to form a row as shown below. 
Press seams to either one side or open. Make two.

Step 2) From your two rows in Step 1 and 3.3" x 0.8" white fabric, sew them together as  shown below. Press seams to either one side or open. Now you have a block!

Step 3) Sew a 1.1" x 3.3" white fabric to each side (left and right) of the block as shown below. Press seams to either one side or open.

Step 4) Sew a 4.5" x 1.1" white fabric to each side (top and bottom) of the block as shown below. Press seams to either one side or open.

Step 5) Placed the 4.5" x 4.5" backing fabric and the completed block right sides together.
Pin it in placed. Sew all around the edge using a 1/4" seam allowance.
Leave about a 1" space opening on the top for turning later on.

Step 6) Turn the pincushion right side out through the 1" space opening.
Gently push out the corners.
Now, Fill it with a pincushion filling of your choice and hand stitch the opening closed!


Enjoy your cute Pincushion and make it in all four season as a gift for everyone you know. ^^


I hope you have enjoy this quick and easy tutorial.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
