PentaPinnie EPP Pincushion : Sewing KIT
Store your pins and needles in the super smart PentaPinnie pincushion. This kit includes a selection of five charming sewing themed prints and a couple of co-ordinating solids.
See more details below.
This English Paper Piecing (EPP) KIT guides you through the process of making the popular PentaPinne pincushion.
Each PentaPinnie KIT includes the following:
- Step-by-step instructions
- Full sized templates for fabric and paper pieces, printed on card
- A selection of 7 fabrics (see photos)
- Decovil Light (for a firm base)
You will need a needle & thread and a pair of scissors. You will also need to add some filling for your pincushion. Try using toy stuffing or crushed walnut shells, or even a combination of the two.
If you are new to English Paper Piecing I have some YouTube Videos with some tips on basting and stitching your EPP shapes together. Have a read of the blog post about the release of the PentaPinnie pdf to see some other finished versions.
Size: Once finished your PentaPinnie pincushion will measure approximately 4″ wide x 1.75″ high.
Project Level: Confident Beginner
The Striped Easter Egg FPP pattern makes a fun 8″ Easter themed block. The pattern allows you to use lots of beautiful fabrics.
It would look super as a mini wall hanging or could be included in a larger quilt. Add a few extra sashing strips and it turns into the front of a cushion!
The Cactus in a Pot FPP pattern makes a Catus that requires absoloutely no watering at all!
The completed block measures 10″ x 14″.
You could make it up on it’s own and use it for a mini wall hanging, or add some sashing strips to the outer edges and use it to turn into a tote bag. You could even use it to make up a cushion as you can see in one of the pictures.
