I made a smaller version of my felt butterfly pillow. This pincushion would make a great door gift and as birthday party favor.
The finished size for this pincushion is 4" X 4".
To make one:
1. Cut one plain fabric measuring 5" X 9" (including 1/2" seam allowance). Cut out two felt butterflies in different sizes and colours. Lay out the butterflies onto the fabric.
2. Sew along the center of the butterflies. Fold the fabric in half with right sides facing and sew around the edges. Leave an opening about 2 1/2".
3. Turn the fabric right side out and stuff the pillow with poly-fill. Sew the opening closed with a slip stitch.
