  • Step 1

    Cut out a circle of tracing paper the desired size for your pin cushion and pin to two pieces of fabric slightly larger than the circle.

  • Step 2

    Sew the layers together using the circumference of the circle as a guide, leaving an inch gap.
    Unpin the circle and turn it inside out.

  • Step 3

    Stuff cushion with wadding and sew the gap closed.
    Sew a single stitch in the centre of the cushion to create a dimple.

  • Step 4

    Sew tight loops of cotton thread around the cushion passing through the centre to create 6 segments (see photo).

  • Step 5

    Sew buttons in the centre of each side of cushion to hide any untidy ends.
    Voila!
