This pincushion cuff is my favorite sewing accessory! Just strap it on and get busy sewing.

It goes where you go, so you won't find yourself frustrated when you are standing there holding an area to pin only to discover that the pincushion is waaaaay over there out of reach.

Step 1: Cut Pieces

(2) strips 9" long x 2.75" wide
(1) Iron-on interfacing or other stabilizer (optional)
(1) 2" piece of VELCRO

(2) circles 3-4" in diameter for the outside fabrics (a coffee cup, yogurt container lid or packing tape works great for a circle template)
(1) extra layer of scrap fabric for the bottom of the pincushion. This will be on the inside so it doesn't matter what it looks like.
<p>This was easy, great instructions. I will be using this a lot.</p>
so cute great instructions
That is really cute! After making a couple, how long does it take you to complete from from start to finish? I don't know how I'd do it, but I'd figure out a way to put a little piece of plastic in the bottom of the cushion so a pin doesn't accidently poke through. Very sweet instructable.
The pic made me think: Pork-loin + Hell-raiser
Keykalou of etsy fame, I'm guessing? This is a really nice tutorial. :)
