How to Make Pretty Pincushionscomments (48) April 3rd, 2008
Step 4: Sew the ball to the base
Hand-stitch in place using a blanket stitch or whipstitch. Working from right to left, bring the needle from back to front 1/8 inch from the edge. Keep the thread from the previous stitch under the needle point.
Step 5: Embellish with embroidery
Pincushions are the perfect canvas for hand embroidery. Thread your needle with a single strand of embroidery floss. Combine the stitches shown below to make flowers, vines, or geometric designs. If at first you don’t succeed, try again. Felt is very forgiving.
