Pin Cushion patterns seem to be everywhere on the internet these days but nothing seem to impress me. I wanted to make a different yet fun pincushion and lo I came up with this bulls eye egg one! This pin cushion can be made in minutes, you don't need too much of supplies. Just dig in to your pile of scraps and grab a little bit of polyfibre, you are ready to start!.
Here is the tutorial:
Lets first do the yolk. We need to trace an approximately 5" circle onto the yellow yolk fabric. Here I have used my salad bowl for that.
Now sew around the edge of the circle with a matching thread and needle. Take care to leave quite a long tail of thread at both the ends.
Pull at both the threads to form a pouch with the circle.
Fill the pouch with polyfibre and tighten the the thread to close the pouch. Tie a few knots to secure.
Lets go on to make the egg white.
Take two pieces of your white scrap, layer them and cut it in an irregular shape (like that of fried eggs), as shown above. It should measure approximately 5 & 1/2" across.
Turn the yolk inside out and stuff the inside with polyfiber.
Sew the opening shut, using a needle and thread.
Voila! Our cutie pincushion is ready!
