The Pincushion Makes a Lovely Gift, Too!
This cute little pincushion will be a welcome addition to your sewing room, especially if you love Singer Featherweights. It’s also a wonderful gift for quilting friends and a fun project for quilt groups.
Choose a nice assortment of scraps to depict the cute Featherweight machine. A nine-patch block represents a quilt ready to be sewn and provides color variety.
While this is a great pincushion, the top is large enough to be used as a small block in other projects. For example, it could be turned into a mug rug or used as the center of a mini medallion quilt. There are lots of other ways to use it, too.
The finished pincushion, inspired by Sew Happy from designer Kathleen Berlew, is 5-1⁄2″ × 5-1⁄2″ × 2″. The pattern is from American Patchwork & Quilting.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
