This gorgeous pincushion is made using a curved English paper-piecing technique, a traditional hand-sewing skill brought right up to date using modern fabrics and methods.
This pincushion finishes at approx. 5.5" x 2" and is substantial enough to keep all your pins safe in one place - and off the floor! Made in 1930s vintage floral prints with a Essex dyed linen as a background, this handmade project is a great introduction to curved paper-piecing, and would also make a great gift for crafty friends.
Each kit contains all the fabric you need, plus a square of wadding, full instructions and full size templates to cut out. You will need a glue pen for basting, thread for piecing and quilting and *filling.
* For the filling you could use toy stuffing, or a mixture of toy stuffing and wire wool that would keep your pins sharps, or even crushed walnut shells for added weight.
