Charm Pack — (7) 5-inch charms
YLI silk thread
Scrap of thin batting at least 5 inches X 10 inches
poly stuffing or walnut shells
Clover yo-yo maker (optional)
Choose 4 charms for the half square triangles and trim to 3 inches square.
Cut the squares in half on the solid line and press your half square triangles
Square on a Square…..
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.
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.
