This pincushion is fun and easy to make. Mandy takes you through all the stages including using the ladder stitch to product invisible joins. She also likes to use recycled plastic pellets for the stabliser. Or, you could use cooked rice or lentils or indeed crushed walnut shells – they would all do the same job.
The top of the pincushion is like a big suffolk puff. Again, Mandy has some handy tips on how to ease out the wrinkles.
