Embroidery Hoop Pin Cushion Tutorial
Small embroidery hoop
Cork cupboard liner
Scrap of fabric
Hot glue gun
1- Separate the two pieces of the embroidery hoop and lay the inner hoop (the piece with no fastener) on the cork and trace the inside circle twice. Try to angle the pen to get as accurate of a tracing as possible. Cut out both circles.
2- Lay the inner embroidery hoop down on top of newspaper or a brown paper bag, and place the cork inside with the sticky side facing the inside of the hoop. Use a hot glue gun to secure the edges of the cork to the embroidery hoop.
3- Loosen the outer hoop, and stuff it with fabric, and a large handful of fiber fill.
4- Put the inner embroidery hoop back in place, with the non-glued/non-sticky side of the cork touching the fiber fill. Pull the fabric tight from the back side, and tighten the embroidery hoop fastener as needed.
5- Trim the excess fabric, leaving about 1" around the edges. Fold them down and glue in place.
6- Hot glue the sticky side of the other cork circle. Place it over the back side of the pin cushion to hide the raw edges of the fabric, and hold firmly until the glue sets.
This is going on my “to-do” list ASAP! Stacie is full of creativity and talent. Make sure to stop by the Yellow Spool to see projects like these…
