Pincushions are just handy. They are also one of those beautiful, small items people always welcome as a gift! These would be great for teachers, friends and crafters on your gift list. Pins add to the total “Wow” effect! Here are our favorite pincushion tutorials on the web (and one for those “Wow” pins too):
Tiny Pincushion
Jess shows how to repurpose bottle caps in this Tiny Pincushion Tutorial on How About Orange.
Shrinky Dink Pins
Who could resist these fun pins from Hillary of Wee Wonderfuls? Here is Hillary’s Shrinky Dink Tutorial.
Patchwork Pincushion
Leah, from Hyena in Petticoats, creates a beautiful pincushion with her Patchwork Pincushion Tutorial.
Just as an aside, at the very last minute Leah’s tutorial pictures “disappeared” in one of those special, odd technology glitches we all run into from time to time. Leah worked hard yesterday to re-shoot all of the photos so you could enjoy this fantastic tutorial (and spread the good tidings with some great gifts over the holidays). Thank you, Leah, for all of your hard work; we appreciate it!
Offset Square Wrist Pincushion
This Offset Square Wrist Pincushion Tutorial, from June of PlanetJune, is handy for the crafter with a lot of “creative clutter!”
