Charming Twin Pincushions




Charm Pack --- (7) 5-inch charms




Upholstery Thread
YLI silk thread
Scrap of thin batting at least 5 inches X 10 inches
pins
poly stuffing or walnut shells
Clover yo-yo maker (optional)


Choose 4 charms for the half square triangles and trim to 3 inches square.


Take background fabric and cut 3 inch squares and layer Right sides together. Draw a line in the center of the background fabric and sew 1/4 inch on each side as shown. Repeat for 3 other squares.

Cut the squares in half on the solid line and press your half square triangles
Once pressing is complete, arrange them in a '4-patch'....There are several possible layouts, such the PINWHEEL....

Square on a Square.....

And others......



I chose 2 layouts as shown and sewed the half square triangles together. Layered the blocks with a thin batting scrap and stitched in the ditch or 1/4 around the patch pieces. **NOTE** I didn't use backing fabric.



Trim the blocks to size 4 3/4 inches.

Using your favorite method, layer the pieced/quilted block right sides together with another charm cut to 4 3/4 inches. Sew the perimeter and leave an opening for stuffing. Stuff cushion and whip stitch with silk thread to hide the seam.

Embellish with coordinating buttons and yo-yo's.



Coordinating buttons and yo-yo's *Note* at least 2 small yo-yo's can be made from a single charm.
Button

2 Pincushions..keep one for yourself and give the other away. If you are using an entire charm pack...you could make at least 8-10 pincushions.
