Free Patterns Everyday - Vintage Strawberry Pin Cushion Pattern

19th Century Strawberry Pin Cushion Pattern

The 19th Century woman didn't stray far from her sewing. Whether it was embroidering a cushion or a hankie, making or mending a dress, or decorating a hat, her pins and needles were always within reach. These lovely little strawberry pin cushions are easy to make with sawdust stuffing. A 12 inch diameter circle of fabric makes three pin cushions. Perfect as is or team up with a thimble and spool of thread as a gift for someone you know who sews. Download this easy to make pattern HERE.

  6. So sweet! I can't wait to make some up, the finger loop is so cute. I love pin cushions filled with sawdust (especially white oak... sends me back to another time). Thanks Mary & Susan!!
