voila! BEAUTIFUL pincushions!

During our most recent Sewing 1-2-3 session, we made pin cushions! We started by cutting out the shapes of our cushions out of felt using pinking shears. Then some sketched their ideas in their notebook for a pattern, while others cut felt freely to use for an applique.

We then decorated our cushion pieces with embroidery and applique.

Once that was done, we stitched three sides of the cushion together and left the last side open so we could stuff the cushions.

After the cushions were firmly filled, we stitched 1/2 of the last open side closed, then stuffed the cushion even further, and stitched the last bit closed.
