Perfect for Gifts and Swaps!

Do you wish you had a pin cushion that travels with you? We often work outside of the sewing room and have longed for a handy place to keep pins and needles that move along with us. This pennant caught our eye as a great solution.

While its small enough to hang just about anywhere, even from the wheel of the sewing machine, we made ours with a longer cord so it can hang around the neck. Perfect! No more scrambling for a pin cushion.

The pennant is a super quick project and can easily be made from scraps. A piece of felt is used for the landing spot for pins. And, it wouldn’t be hard to create a pocket in the back for small scissors.

Once completed, the pennant designed by Heidi Staples of Fabric Mutt is 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2” (plus the cord length).

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!
