I decided to give you a little tutorial showing something you could make with the die that is quick and easy…a pincushion.
To start out, you will need 8 of the narrow curved “Paul” pieces.
Take two pieces and place them right sides together. Sew along the STRAIGHT edge. You need four sets.
Now take two to those pieces. Place them right sides together and sew along the curved edge. You will need two sets.
Take your two pieces and place them right sides together matching the notches. Sew all the way around the piece leaving an inch opening so that it can be turned right side out.
Turn right side out. Fill with sand and them stitch the opening shut.
Take a button along with a needle and thread and sew through the center top down through the center bottom pulling the thread tightly to make an indent for the button to set in. Sew back and forth through the center a couple times to keep it secure. Attach the button and you have your pincushion.
It’s a super quick and really easy project if you need a quick gift for a quilting buddy.
