A Wonderful Gift for Your Quilting and Sewing Friends!
Place this pincushion at the base of your sewing machine for easy access. You’ll always know just where to poke those pins you remove while you’re sewing.
It’s a fun little project you can have done in next to no time. Before long you’ll wonder how you got along without it.
This is also a fun project to select fabric for. You probably already have scraps on hand that will work. While you’re at it, why not pick out fabric for more than one. This is a wonderful gift for all your sewing and quilting friends.
Skinny Pincushion by Nesta. From eamylove.
Buttons, lace and other embellishments are a fun addition. See several pretty examples at eamylove.
The Patchsmith designed a mat to attach her pincushion to. That way the pincushion stays put. It will also move with the machine should you need to slide it to a different spot on the table.

The tutorial for the skinny pincushion, from Green Bee Patterns, results in a pincushion that is about 10″ x 2″. You can easily adjust the length to suit your needs.
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!
