Liberty Patchwork Pincushion

DIY Pincushion Tutorial With Free Pattern

I posted this Liberty patchwork pincushion on my Instagram feed recently and wanted to share the instructions and a free pattern so you can make one of your own. This is such a great project for small scraps and would make a lovely gift to a sewist!

I didn’t take pictures when I made my Liberty cushion but I made this one using my vintage feedsack fabrics to show you how. The finished pincushion measures a little over 5″ in diameter.

If you read my blog, you know how much I love Liberty lawn. I got these tiny fabric scraps of Liberty Betsy from Ava and Neve and wanted to find a way to turn the tiny scraps into a usable piece of fabric for a project. I decided to experiment using iron on vinyl that I talked about here to tack down my fabric so I didn’t need to stitch down all the raw edges. I am so pleased with how this laminate pouch turned out.
