Discover the technique of curved English paper-piecing with this beautiful pincushion project. Use two left over jelly roll strips, or raid the stash, to make this good-sized pincushion that will ensure your pins are nice and safe (and off the floor) and always to hand when you need them.
The pattern includes:
• Full materials requirements
• Full colour instructions
• Cutting Instructions
• Piecing instructions
Finished size: Approx. 5.5" x 2"
Skill level: Experienced hand piecer
You will need:
• Two 2½” x WOF fabric strips in contrasting colours, or you could of course raid the stash.
• Two 6½” background squares and one of wadding.
• Sewline Glue Pen, which you can purchase here.
• One 6” square of tracing paper
• Filling - you could use toy stuffing, or as I did, crushed walnuts shells which add weight and keep your pins nice and sharp, you can purchase a 200g bag on the website here.
IMPORTANT: When printing your templates, to ensure you are printing at the correct scale, just check that the box on the page measures 1" square - if it doesn't adjust your printer settings to accommodate - and check that the 'fit to page' option isn't ticked.
Make sure to read the whole pattern all the way through before beginning your project.
