– 4 squares of different fabrics of 5”

– 1 square of fabric of 9 1/2”

Step 1:

Join the squares into pairs, right sides together, with the ¼” foot. Press seams open.

Step 2:

Join the two strips of squares from step 1, right sides together, making sure the seams match and leaving a 3” opening (we will be filling the pin cushion through there). Use the ¼” foot and press seams open.

Step 3: 

Put the square from step 2 right sides together with the 9 ½” square. Pin and sew with the ¼” foot all around the square. Turn right side out through the opening we left on step 2. Press.

Step 4:

Draw diagonals in the squares as you can see in the pictures. Sew on those lines.

Step 5:

Press each edge of the fabric creating a soft curve. Sew the curves down with the sewing machine.

Step 6:

Use the algodon siliconado? to fill the pin cushion. Hand stitch the opening to close it.

Step 7:

Join the corners with needle and thread, as shown in the picture. Add a button to decorate.
