DIY Modern Pin Cushion Tutorial

Pin cushions are great gifts for anyone who sews even occasionally. And face it, that tomato of days of old is pretty tired. Some of the new ones are a bit complicated or expensive. Wouldn’t you like to just make your own, the way you want?

Then you are in luck because here is a DIY Modern Pin Cushion Tutorial. Look through the pictures and use the tips to make the pin cushion that your heart desires. Or make a bunch and give them for gifts. I made five of these and exchanged one last night at our Modern Quilt Guild meeting.  I tell you, these pin cushions are snazzy little projects good for a whole slew of reasons, not to mention sticking pins in them.

Sew happy!
