Butterfly Pincushion

Butterfly Pincushion

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.
