Free Wrist Pincushion Tutorial

I'm celebrating!  I am just short of having 750,000 blog hits here at T. in the Burg!  That's a big 75 with FOUR ZERO's! Three quarters of a MILLION!  So as part of my big celebration, I am posting a free tutorial for my cuter-than-cute FLOWER POWER WRIST PINCUSHION.  To be honest, I had planned to post this free tutorial at 500,000 hits.  Then again at 600,000.  But life has a tendency to get in the way of my plans, big-time. Better late than never, I always say.  Probably say it way to much!


These make sweet little gifts and are a great scrap buster project.  You know what I'm talking about, don't you?  We all have those little bits if a much loved fabric that we just had to hang on to that will be perfect for this, don't you think?   It's all about the selection of fabrics.  I generally like to use a yellow for the center, because, after all, the pincushion is a flower.  But I have shared this pattern with my quilty friends who have used whichever fabrics they liked and their pincushions turned out perfectly.  Maybe it's only me that needs it to look like a flower...

Update: Since posting this tutorial, a number of readers have asked about the cute pins shown.  I purchased them from Vicki at her Etsy shop, "Decorative Sewing Pins".  She has TONS of really cute sewing related items and she's an absolute dream to work with.  Just click on the link.

I hope that you will enjoy this free tutorial.  I'd love to see what you make from my pattern.  If you are on Instagram, add #currybungalow or #flowerpowerpincushion. Or, email a photo to currybungalow@gmail.com.  I always enjoy seeing how others interpret my patterns.

    1. Shelley, I neglected to add in the above post where I purchased those super cute pins. I have just added an update that will direct you to the Etsy shop where I purchased them.

  3. Congrats! What kind of glue is used. Is "tacky glue" the brand name? Thanks for the tutorial.

    1. Hello, Jennifer,

      The full name of the glue is Aleen's Tacky Glue. You can find it at fabric stores, craft stores and of course, Walmart. It's great for using on fabric but it is also a good all around household glue.

    1. Oh, Jeanne, it's BAD when we lose our mojo! We've all been there at one time or another. I don't mean to sound salesy... but my thread catchers make fabulous gifts. I have a number of buyers who visit my esty shop and purchase finished ones for gifts, but you could make them yourself at a huge savings. Check out my three thread catcher patterns at www.etsy.com/shop/currybungalow.
