But honestly, everyone is a winner! I thought I'd tell you all how to make this quick pin cushion.
I sewed mine by hand but if you're comfortable with a couple Y-seams it's not difficult to stitch by machine.
- Twelve 60˚ diamonds
- Six matching hexagons
- Two cute buttons
I made mine using 2" diamonds and hexagons and it measures a whopping 7" - the advantage is that I can never lose it!
Here's a pic to show you how I pieced it together.
And another to show how I pressed my seam allowances.
Once you have this, you'll join up the side seams and sew the star on the other side. Leave one side seam open to fill very full with batting.
With a button on top and one below, sew through several times and pull tight.
p.s. if you make a pin cushion, please post a pic to JPA's Flickr group, thank you!
