Ornamental Pincushion

For this charming pincushion ornament, we used the design Freestanding Point Lace Heart for the large size hoop (5" x 7"). Made in red, it can be a quick Valentine's Day gift or decoration. Other colors are suitable for other occasions.

You will need:

  • threads for embroidery, in any color you like
  • medium-weight wash-away mesh stabilizer,
  • a piece of white quilt cotton fabric measuring not less than 5" x 7",
  • piece of fabric from your stash for the backing,
  • polyester filling,
  • #12 universal needle for your sewing machine,
  • sewing threads in the matching colors,
  • scissors,
  • a sewing needle,
  • a sheet of paper,
  • a pencil,
  • small embellishments such as beads or trim (optional).

Embroidery:

Upload the embroidery file of the Freestanding Point Lace Heart into your machine and embroider it, following the included instructions.

After the embroidery is done, wash out the stabilizer and let the stitch-out dry.

Making a Template:

Place the stitch-out on a sheet of paper and trace its heart-shaped outline.

You do not need to trace the upper loop.

With the pencil, draw around the curves to get a heart shape.

Add another 1/4" for seam allowance. Cut out the template.
Use the template to cut out two pieces of fabric: the top and the backing.

Position the stitch-out over the top part. Pin in place.
