Vintage Planter Pincushion Tutorial



I thought I'd share this vintage planter pincushion tutorial with you all as a fun, cheap, and super-easy last-minute gift idea. They're so cute and easy to make into a fun gift for a sewist in your life! We find these little planters pretty often at thrift stores, keep your eyes peeled and I'm sure you'll find something cute. You could also use a pretty vintage teacup or egg cup.

I found this cute little vintage deer planter at a thrift store and I decided to make myself a pincushion exclusively for my hand sewing needles- I'm always searching through my pins when I need them so this will make my life a bit easier. And did I mention the cushion is a great scrap-buster?

This is seriously the world's easiest project. But I made you some instructions anyway:

Step 1: Cut a round-ish piece of fabric and sew a loose running stitch around the edges.

Step 2: Pull both ends of the thread to form a bag.

Step 3: Put some stuffing in it and tie the thread ends together.

Step 4: Pull the ends tightly (as tight was you can without breaking them), and sew it closed with a few stitches. It gets hidden so it doesn't have to look pretty!

Step 5: Stuff it in!

Step 5: Pull it out the cushion just a bit until you have the desired shape

You're done!
You could also glue the cushion in, but I opted not to so I can easily have this go back to being a planter if I want to in the future. It would also be pretty adorable with a single succulent planted in it, right?

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you all have a wonderful holiday!
