Introduction

A wraparound pincushion that fastens onto your sewing machine keeps pins in place and at your finger tips. Follow the instructions below to make one yourself.

materials

  • Fabric

  • Sewing machine

  • Thin batting

steps

  1. Make a pattern: For length, measure the machine's circumference in a spot free of dials, then add 2 1/2 inches. Choose a width that suits the machine (about 2 to 3 inches) and add 1/2 inch.

  2. Layer a piece of thick fabric (for the backing) and a piece of cotton or velour over two pieces of thin batting, all cut to fit dimensions.

  3. Sew along three sides, leaving 1/4-inch seam allowance. Turn right side out, and top stitch around all four sides, 1/4 inch from edge.

  4. Sew strips of velcro brand tape to ends on opposite sides
