• Co­or­di­nat­ing back­ing fab­ric • Polyester fiber­fill • Three but­tons • Co­or­di­nat­ing rib­bon • Sewing nee­dle and thread • Fab­ric marker

Press stitched pieces from re­verse side, straight­en­ing as much as pos­si­ble.

With right side of one stitched pieced face­down, mea­sure de­sired dis­tance (1/2"–1") from stitch­ing on all sides and draw a line this dis­tance from edge of de­sign all around, stay­ing on grain line of fab­ric when pos­si­ble. Do not cut fab­ric. Place stitched piece over a piece of back­ing fab­ric with right sides to­gether and pin lay­ers to­gether.

Sew around de­sign along drawn line, leav­ing an open­ing at bot­tom for turn­ing. Trim both lay­ers to 1/4" seam al­lowance. Trim cor­ners to 1/8" seam al­lowance. Turn right side out, fill with polyester fiber­fill, and sew open­ing closed.

Re­peat with re­main­ing stitched piece to make sec­ond pincushion.

Re­fer­ring to photo, at­tach a short length of rib­bon and a but­ton to each up­per cor­ner of Maid­ens pincushion. Sew re­main­ing but­ton to cen­ter of Four-Patch pincushion, sewing through front and back to in­dent cen­ter.
