I’ve been wanting to make a new pincushion for my longarm machine pins for a while now, but it wasn’t a priority until I stumbled upon some leftover HSTs. Rather than throw them away, I wanted to do something with them. A pincushion seemed like a nice, quick project.
The top came together pretty quickly, even with such small units. For more on that, check out my previous post, “Rescuing Leftovers.”
I wanted to give the pincushion some height so that the long pins wouldn’t poke through the bottom of the cushion and prick my fingers. I made the pincushion 2.5″ tall.
At 6″ x 6″ x 2.5″ it is the biggest pincushion I have ever made. It will be perfect for my many pins.
I plan on pinning around the tiger in the middle.
