PentaPinnie EPP Pincushion : PDF pattern
Pincushions are a fabulous way of using up those precious scraps of gorgeous fabrics that you’ve been holding onto for a rainy day! They are also perfect for sewing swaps and gifts.
This English Paper Piecing pdf pattern guides you through making a pincushion based on the shape of a pentagon. It features a firm base so you end up with a more stable pincushion.
Once finished your PentaPinnie pincushion will measure approximately 4″ wide x 1.75″ high.
If you are new to English Paper Piecing I have some YouTube Videos with some tips on basting and stitching your shapes together.
This pdf pattern includes digitally drawn templates for cutting both your paper pieces and your fabrics and the instructions are supported with clear photographs and illustrations.
The pdf is a total of 5 pages, of which the templates are laid out on 1 page.
In the gallery of images you’ll see a version of the PentaPinnie made by one of my lovely customers.
