Acorn Pincushion
By Marie Browning, Marie Browning Creates


Here's a cute gift idea; stitch a bunch of these to strew in a basket you stick with needles, thread, scissors and of course - pins!

You will need:

Cotton fabric - in a variety of solids and pattern, in shades of browns and creams
Polyester Fiberfilacorn pincushion.jpg (19426 bytes)
Tacky craft glue
Narrow brown satin ribbon

Assembling:    Cut the fabric into 5" circles, use the solids for the nut and prints for the acorn's cap.   Sew gathering stitches around the edge of the solid circle, do not cut the thread.   Place a handful of stuffing in the center, pull up gathers tightly to form the base of the acorn.  Tie thread ends to secure.  Using pins, mark horizontal line around middle of base.  Glue some stuffing above the pin marks, covering gathers.   turn under 1/4" on edges of print circle.  Sew gatherings stitches around edge; do not cut thread.  place circle on base, pulling up gathering stitches so edge of circle is even with pin line, forming cap of acorn.  Tie threads to secure.   Stitch cap to acorn along gathering edges.  fold a 2" piece of ribbon in half to form hanging loop, stitch to top of cap to finish.
