Maximum diameter (point to point) is 51/4” wide. Apart from 2 lines of straight machine stitching (for reinforcing) this project is entirely hand pieced*.

Requirements

  • Eight 3 1/2” x 21/2”” scraps of fabric for the kite shapes.
  • One rectangle of 7 1/2” x 51/2” fabric for the two backing shapes.
  • One strip of fabric 16 1/2” x 1 3/4” for the perimeter of the pincushion.
  • Two coordinating buttons 1” in diameter  (not buttons with shanks).**
  • Coordinating 6-stranded Embroidery floss and embroidery needle.
  • Freezer paper, template plastic or card and pen to trace these with.
  • Disappearing fabric marking pen (I use frixion pens).
  • Machine thread to match fabric strip and sewing machine.
  • Thread for hand piecing, general sewing supplies and iron.
  • Stuffing.

* Method can be adjusted for machine piecing, but pattern does not contain those instructions.

** Make sure the buttons have a matching number of holes.
