How to make a pin cushion ring

Updated on July 3, 2012


If you sew, you have to make yourself one of these great pin cushion rings!

Here is what you will need:

Scrap fabric 3 ¼” x 3 ¼”

3” Circle Template

Marking Pen




Hot Glue Gun

Ring Blank

Fiber Fill

Take your 3” circle template (I use a plastic one that is used for quilting but you can make your own on the computer) and trace your circle on your fabric.

Cut your fabric along the circle you just made.

Cut a piece of thread about 15” and knot the end. Sew a running stitch about a 1/8” away from the end of the fabric. If you find that the fabric is separating, you may have to sew further from the edge.

Lightly pull the thread and evening distribute the gathered material until it resembles a little bowl. Do not snip the tread yet.

Take a palm sized amount of fiber fill and roll into a ball. Pack the fiber fill in the bowl of your material.

Tighten the thread until you have a nice tight puff.

Heat up your hot glue gun. Put a generous amount of hot glue on the bottom of your pin cushion and immediately adhere to the ring base.

      Nice job. Just don' t push that pin too far into the fiber or you'll get more of a point than you wanted to out of it.

      This is my next project. Not only cute but it will be such a help! The wrist ones are nice, but this is a "why didn't I think of that" idea for those tight places or slippery pieces that require a lot of small stitches.

      How cute is that? I'll have to make one of these. Sure doesn't cost much to make. Voted up and shared.
