12 Awesome Free Pincushion Tutorials

Inspired by the guest post I shared last week - a tutorial for a super cute Felt Tree Stump Pincushion tutorial last - today I'm sharing a round-up of links to 12 more pincushion tutorials. You can never have too many pretty sewing accessories, right? :)


1. Hedgehog Pincushion - Maker Land. So cute and fluffy!

2. Teapot Pincushion - Join the Mood. Perfect for tea addicts (like me!)

3. Spring Violets Pincushion - Heather Bailey. Such a pretty design.

4. Mouse Pincushion - The Long Thread. I love this mouse but I'd sew him with a smiley face as he looks a bit sad at having pins stuck in him!

5. Crocheted African Flower Pincushion - Cherry Heart. Great for using up scraps of yarn or practising your crochet skills (mine need a lot of improvement).


6. Birdie Pincushions - Sharon Holland Designs. These lovely birds would also make sweet ornaments.

7. Felt Teacup Pincushions - Betz White / Martha Stewart. Such a fun project, using old woollen sweaters.

8. Felt Toadstool Houses Pincushions - The Little House by the Sea. Toadstools are always awesome.


9. Faux Cathedral Windows Pincushion - Diary of A Quilt Maven. A pretty, quilt-y project.

10. Cactus Pincushion - No Wooden Spoons. Make a cactus that has pins instead of prickles.

11. Wool Flower Pincushions - Better Homes & Gardens. The large pincushion design would also make a great cushion (pillow) if you scaled it up.

12. Apple Pincushion - Mollie Makes/ The Guardian. A lovely combo of fabric & felt.

Psst - for more crafty ideas, check out my archive of free tutorials!

thanks for sharing it, I am absolutely going to make one but I'll put it on a shelf and (if it comes out as pretty as the one pictured) just stare at it in adoration. it's just too lovely to be used as a pincushion!

Irene - there are some very talented crafters out there! I'd find it really hard to choose which of these to make :)

Manu - it's wonderful, isn't it? I hope your teapot turns out well!
