Felt Donut Pin Cushion


Celebrate your sweet-tooth with this sewing project for a cute donut pincushion. Stacy Schlyer of Stacy Sews added sugar cookie fragrance to the stuffing for an added bonus while sewing!

Felt Donut Pin Cushion


  • 2 large felt squares in brown or other color for donut
  • 1 felt square in pink or other frosting color
  • Sprinkle Beads
  • Craft Stuffing
  • Optional: Scent, Sweet-topped pins


  1. Place two felt squares together, draw a large circle and a smaller circle (inside of the larger one) on one (wrong) side of felt.
  2. Sew the large circle, right sides together. Cut small circle out, leaving a 1/4 seam allowance.
  3. Turn right side out.
  4. Stuff the donut. Insert fragrance now if you like.
  5. Sew small circle shut (you'll have to hand stitch this once closed, tucking the raw edges inside).
  6. Cut pink (or other 'frosting' color) felt the same size as donut.
  7. Decorate with beads, etc. for sprinkles and sew onto stuffed donut.

This felt donut pin cushion is a great idea for someone who sews and loves donuts. This is so different from all other pin cushions. Such a simple and easy tutorial to follow and a great last minute gift.I can even see these being sewn for girls to play cooking with. How would not want to play house and serve one on a plate. So if your donut pin cushion is missing you may want to check bedrooms. That is where mine would be.

A friend gave me one of these and I always wondered where she got the idea :) These are so darling and useful and no calories either!! I LOVE Favecrafts!!

Great idea for a gift! I am always looking for gifts for my quilting buddies.
