Skinny Pin Cushion

Did you know this month is National Sewing Month?  It's a great time dust off your sewing machine and stitch up something fun! Here's a quick easy project you can sew up in less than an hour. It is a cute and easy pattern from Green Bee Designs.

 I always seem to need a second pincushion when I sew.  One at the ironing board or floor where I do my pinning and one at the sewing machine where I do the unpinning.  I've been using a rolled up piece of knit for my sewing machine pincushion over the last month so I thought it was high time to make myself another pincushion.

I saw this one sewn up by Anna of Noodlehead a while ago and decided it would be the perfect fit for my little sewing area.

Speaking of my little sewing area. I moved my sewing table to my front sitting room for now. It gives me a little extra light, which I love!  And I spray painted one of our old folding chairs turquoise for a pop of color.

 Anyway, it's Labor Day and you have some free time...Go Sew!


  1. cute cute! love how it coordinates with your machine, too! :)

  2. Now why didn't I ever think of that!?!?!?! I'm a pincushion lover, and I'm definitely going to make some in this style!

  3. I love this! I think I'll have to put it on the schedule. :)
