How to Make Pretty Pincushionscomments (48) April 3rd, 2008
Working from right to left, bring the needle out at point A. Insert it at point B, holding a loop of thread to the left. Bring the needle up at point C inside the loop. Pull the stitch to tighten. Point C then becomes point A. Repeat.
Bring the needle out at point A. Reinsert it into the same hole or close to it, leaving a loop. Exit at point B, holding the loop under the needle. Pull the needle through. Insert the needle on other side of the thread loop to secure.
Bring the needle and thread out at point A. Hold the thread taut with your left hand, and wrap it around the needle two or three times. Insert the wrapped needle close to point A.
