Strawberry Pincushions

Steps:5
You may remember seeing charming strawberry pincushions like these in your grandmother's sewing box. Hers were probably sewn from scraps of leftover fabric; ours are made with ribbon remnants, shirting fabric, and felt, which works especially well because its edges won't fray.
Materials
  • Pincushion template
  • Fabric and ribbon remnants
  • Sewing machine
  • Needle and thread
  • Scissors
  • Fine sand or emery
  • #3 pearl-cotton thread or felt, for berries' tops
  • 6-strand embroidery floss, for seeds
  • Fabric glue
