Quick and Cute Felt Pincushions

I don't know about you, but I really like pincushions. You can have them in so many different shapes and sizes!
Here's an easy peasy way to make one.

All you do is roll up some felt very tightly and stitch in place. I stitched a button to the little pink one just to add some interest, but you don't have to.  If you wanted to make a bigger one, you could join the lots of felt pieces together, like I did with this one. To be quicker I used the zigzag stitch on my sewing machine, but you could easily do it by hand.

It might look hard, but it's really easy. I have had my sewing machine for about 5 months and have only just tried using zigzag stitch, I'm not sure why I was too scared now, you don't have to do anything different, the machine does it all for you!

Roll it up nice and tight and pin in place.

You can stitch it together however you want.

See you soon!
P.S Don't worry, bigger tutorials are coming soon! ;)
