Are you looking for the perfect workhorse pincushion refresh? Is your pinnie stuffed full and looking tired and disheveled?? Time to move on up...

The Wildflower Pillbox pinnie is a hefty and elegant pincushion, perfect for adding a stylish touch to your sewing experience and replicates the classic pillbox hat shape.

With just a touch of english paper piecing, applique and handquilting, this pinnie has a little bit of everything for the confident beginner or experienced sewer!

It measures 5 1/2" wide x 2 1/2" deep (14 cm x 6.3 cm) and has a botanical applique design on the top of bud, leaves and dandelion clocks.

The sides feature two rows of clamshells, appliqued with english paper piecing and accentuated with hand quilting.

A row of piping top and bottom makes this an extra smart pinnie, and full instructions will hold your hand as you make and use custom piping in your own fabrics.

There are seven pages of colour photos and graphics, including templates for the top design.

See second graphic for fabric requirements. Also required or helpful are:

• [18] 2” clamshell papers
• 2” acrylic clamshell template
• fabric marking pen
• perle 8 thread for hand quilting
• applique thread (I recommend Superior Bottomline)
• applique & hand quilting needles
• freezer paper
• [2] large handfuls of polyfil
• 1 cup rice (optional)
• liquid starch
• small paint brush

**This is a pdf pattern, and you will not receive a physical copy**

As we all love a multi function item, the extra size and weight also do double duty as a hockey puck to keep the teenager amused, though results are not guaranteed..!
