Pincushion Tutorial

Hexagon Flower Pincushion 
Fabric - Heather Ross Trixie

Back of pincushion- Heather Ross Strawberries 

I keep them in a little tin!

Sue Daley Millners Needles 
Size 11

Walnut shells

Small scissors and a needle threader!

Aurifil 80 weight thread

A hexagon flower sewn by hand using Aurifil 80 weight thread a piece of backing fabric! 
(2) pieces of Pellon SF101 cut to size!

Iron the Pellon 
to each back of fabric!
It will strengthen 
the front side of each side!

Draw a circle on the backside 
of your flower!
I used a measuring cup, 
to draw a circle!

Put fabrics right sides together
and sew 1/4” inside the circle!

All the way around!

It will look like above!

Use a seam ripper to make about a 1 1/2” gap

Big enough to put your finger in!

Trim around the circle 
(About a 1/4”)
Leaving room for clipping!

Clip all around the circle
 and be careful not to clip the stitches!

Pin the top opening and iron!

It is easier to fill it with Walnut Shells if you use a funnel!

Fill it up and hand sew it shut!

I just realized I never posted this tutorial and life got in the way! I hope this helps you to make a fun pincushion out of your 1 inch hexagon flower! Let me know by leaving a comment! Til the next time Lisa


  1. I'm glad you posted it. I've never used any of my cute fussy cut hexagons this way, but I do have a pincushion to make, so I think that's coming right up soon! Thank you!
