How to make a Pin Cushion for a sewing machine

Guys I've done it-
I've solved a major problem!! 
I figured out how to keep from losing
my pins when sewing,
I made a

P I N  CU S H I O N
for my sewing machine!

How to make a Pin Cushion for a sewing machine



I do a tiny bit of sewing.
I say a tiny bit because I am no seamstress.
I can't follow a pattern,
don't use technical terms and make stuff up as I go.
But when I do sew those simple projects,
I lose my pin cushion all the time.
So I made a pin cushion that will stay put.
The directions are very simple
so you can make a sewing machine
pin cushion too.

Put the right sides of the fabric together,

on the short side of the fabric.

Sew all the way around the fabric, 
leaving a 2 inch opening.

Turn the fabric right side out 
and stuff the cushion until it was tight.
Then hand stitch the opening closed.

Sew a small square of velcro 
at the end of each piece of elastic. 
It connects in the back of the sewing machine, 
holds the pin cushion on and 
then is removable if needed.

Attach the pin cushion to your sewing machine!

It's so handy to have pins, 
right where they are needed!

  1. Very clever...well done! Have you figured out all the settings on your sewing machine? I have one similar to yours. Right now all I'm doing are repairs and hemming.

    1. Thanks Donna! No, I barely know how to use my machine. It's kind of embarrassing. I only know how to straight stitch and zig zag. One of these days I need to learn how to sew properly. :) Thanks for your comment, have a great week!!
