“Mini-Me”! Color Wheel Pincushion!

No slides are available.SWEEEEET!  You’re gonna love this pincushion!  It’s been so fun to design and make, I’ve made a few already with a variety of fabric collections.  It hardly takes any fabric at all, and goes together so fast.  Make it today, use it tonight!  You’ve seen my big footstool, and this is the “mini-me” version in a 4″ diameter!  Perfect for treating yourself, or for gifts.  I’ve been able to pull together a kit which includes the foam, crushed walnut shells, tufting cord, felt, instructions and the plywood base with hardware to install your purchased feet.  All you add is the fabric and feet!  What could be easier!  I think I’ll make a truck-load of these, just for the fun of it!  When you orderyours, I’ll send it out the next day!

    1. Thanks for asking Suzanne! Tufting thread is actually a heavy weight cording that will withstand the tension put on it to tuft the button down into the pincushion. It is included in the kit!

  1. I bought a kit while in Florida but I have lost the instructions, where can I get a copy of them with the instructions for the type of drawer pulls I need? Thanks

    1. I measure the crushed walnut shells in cups! About 1/3 cup is all it takes to fill the pouch. I’ve made a bunch of these lately since I had given so many away. They are such fun and I love to see all the different fabric collections!

    1. YES! I sell a “Refill Kit” which includes 2 bases, 2 foam, 2 tufting cords and 2 sets machine screws. Save your instructions to use again. I can keep the price on the refill much lower by doing this! Sheila

        1. Jolene, I’ve tried emailing you, but it doesn’t go through for some reason. I think you might be able to email me, however! If you include your ph# I will get back to you!

  2. I recently purchased your color wheel pin cushion–have a couple of questions–size of drawer pulls, and size of buttons —rec’d four pkgs so guess what some gifts will be!

    1. Great to hear Donna!! You will find the mini drawer pulls at your local home center or hardware store. They are generally a standard size and should fit an 8/32 machine screw. I know you’ll have fun choosing just the right ones to fit the personality of your pincushion! As for the decorative button, choose one that is at least 1/2″, up to 1 1/4″. There are so many out there, and it can really add to the style you have used in your fabrics. The bottom button can be 1/2″ or smaller, very flat. It just needs to cover the center hole of the bottom, and after the felt is applied, it will not show at all. I’m so glad you’re trying this out!
