Pincushions are so fun! Don’t you think? They take minimal fabric and supplies and go together quickly and make great gifts.
I used my small butterfly die from the GO! Qube Specialty Set-Serendipity by Edyta Sitar. I applied Ultra Lite Heat and Bond to my fabric BEFORE I cut out the butterfly. It makes a crisp cut.
I used a simple zig zag stitch to attach to the 5 inch background. I added batting to the back of the appliqué, but I didn’t quilt it. I wish I had.
I filled the pincushions with ground nut shells. I like the weight and the scent of PlumEasy shells from Amazon.
