How to Make a Pretty Pincushion with a Button Centercomments (13) March 18th, 2009
Step 2: Add a crocheted border.
The next few steps are optional for those of you who want to add a crocheted border to your pincushion. Feel free to skip ahead to the button sewing if you'd like. For this section, I used a small amount of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Yarn in color #146 flames. Any sock yarn will do—and it's good for this project because it has a bit of elasticity in it (that makes it easier to pick up the whipstitches). If you don't have any sock yarn, try using embroidery floss or crochet thread instead.
You can either crochet over the long ends as you go, or weave them in when you're through adding the edging.
