Weighted Pincushion/Scrap Bag/Storage Caddy by Karen Hruby

Join us at          The Sewing Center of Cheyenne 


(There will be a ½ hr. lunch break)

Come to our August class and make this sturdy pincushion/scrap bag/storage caddy! It has space to store pins and a wool felt strip for your needles. The hanging pocket is a perfect place for storing easily-misplaced tools like seam rippers, embroidery scissors and thread snips, and the detachable scrap bag helps keep stray threads and clippings from littering your workspace. Because the pincushion is weighted with play sand, it will help sharpen your pens and can perch just as easily on the edge of a table or the arm of a chair or sofa!


You will need three coordinating fabrics, cut as follows:


Fabric A:


9” x 14” for Scrap Bag Lining

5” x 5” for Pincushion Top


Fabric B:


7 1/2” x 23” for Pocket Panel

1 1/2” x 10” for Loop on Pocket Panel (also cut from fusible interfacing)

5” x 5” for Pincushion Top


Fabric C:


9” x 14” for Scrap Bag Exterior

2 1/2” x 9” for Scrap Bag Facing (cut two from fabric and two from fusible interfacing)

3” x 10 1/2” for Pincushion Bottom (cut two)


You will also need:


Lightweight Fusible Interfacing, cut as described above

9” Flannel Square for Weight Bag

2 1/2” x 5” piece of Wool Felt for Pincushion Top

Polyester Fiberfill*

1 1/4 Cups play sand
