Daisy Mae Pincushion
- 7” circle
- 7 half inch paper hexies
- 7 small scraps for the paper hexies
- Mini muffin tin
- Hot glue gun
Using your favorite method of English Paper Piecing, prepare 7 half inch hexies. Stitch the hexies together to make a flower.
Cut a 7” circle. Place the hexie flower in the center of the circle. Stitch in place.
Using 2 stands of thread do a running stitch around the outside edge of the circle.
Note: stay close to edge, approximately ¼” from outside edge.
Slowly gather the stitches, by pulling the thread into a circle. Continue stitching with running stitches around the circle in the same direction.
Note: the running stitches are about ¼” long.
Stuff the center of the circle with stuffing. Continue to tighten the stitches and stuff firmly. Secure thread with a knot.
Place hot glue on the bottom of the pincushion.
Press firmly into the bottom of the tin. Hold in place for a minute.
