How did I sew without one?


I have seen these finger pincushions for an age now. And I thought, that looks useful, I wonder if it really is? But not buying one and for some reason thinking that the 15min it would take to stitch one was not 15minutes that I had, I never got round to it. average cost of viagra per pill


But I kept thinking about them, so the other day I bit the bullet and got down to it.


And REALLY, why have I not made one before?

It was so quick, and it is now soooo useful, I thought I would share with any of you who have never seen one, let alone made one, how to stitch one.


Take a 4 1/2in square of fabric:

Fold in half diagonally RS together. Stitch along the aligned raw edges using 1/4in seam allowance. (Sorry I forgot to use a contrasting thread for photography purposes!) On the second side leave a gap in the middle of about 1in:

Snip the excess fabric from the corners :

Turn RS out and poke out the corners:

Pull the two corners on the long side of the triangle around to meet, and holding them securely, over lap and stitch together:

And that is it, all finished:

I use it on my left hand index finger, as I am right handed, but really you just pop it on whichever finger you feel comfortable with:

So if you have few minutes to spare today, you can make one of these and then transform your stitching life!

Happy stitching!

    I saw a quilter use one of these years ago. So I took your advice and took a few minutes to make one this morning. Oh my you are so right, how did I live without this little pincushion. I am doing some applique and love it for my teeny weenie applique pins. Thank you for sharing this tutorial!
