If you don’t do proper prep. before your Zoom call you have to do super speedy sewing! As Rosemary learnt the hard way! It was lovely to see how many people gave this a try.
These coveted pin cushions found in the Cambridge Art Makers’ studio are super simple to make if you have some felt, stuffing and a needle and thread lying around!
You just need to cut five ovals and sew them together, half an oval at a time so you end up with five leaves.
We use blanket stitch so it looks spikey on the seams before you even put pins in.
Remember to put some stuffing in before you stitch the final pairing!
They look lovely in little terracotta pots, we just super glued them in.
Hopefully the video and drawings help if you are struggling to work it out. If you want more direction, let us know.
