Pumpkin Pin Cushion


I am not much of a sewing fanatic, but I do like having pins around when I do sew. I also love the Fall season, so I decided to make my sewing more festive by making a pumpkin pin cushion!

This project takes a total of 5 squares, some fiber-fil, and a hint of crochet.

Weave 4 orange squares and 1 green square with the Schacht Zoom Loom.

Sew the 4 orange squares into one larger square. Gather threads in each corner and cinch up into a pouch shape. Stuff this shape with some fiber-fil and tie the opening shut.

With the green square, follow the instructions found here for making a leaf.

Attach the leaf to the top of the pumpkin by slip-stitching with some green yarn. Chain stitch 10 stitches, then single crochet 2 in each chain stitch. Bind off and weave in any ends.

Wash your pumpkin to full.

Use it as a pin cushion, or make a few for some Fall decorations.
