Snack Size Pincushions Pattern

Tuesday, July 30, 2019

Happy Tuesday! It's been a while, but I actually have a new pattern to release today! The Snack Size Pincushions Pattern!

I've been thinking about writing this pattern ever since I wrote my All About Pincushions post. I made a tiny patchwork pincushion as a gift and decided to expand on the idea and create six pincushions that use up the smallest scraps!

All six pincushion designs are included in the pattern, and they are all paper pieced. This is the easiest way to work with small pieces in my opinion. There are paper piecing templates with cutting measurements included for all the pincushions, or you can work directly with your scraps.

Need a paper piecing refresher? Check out my step-by-step paper piecing tutorial here: Paper Piecing Tutorial. I consider this an intermediate pattern, previous paper piecing experience would be helpful!

The pattern is available as a PDF download in my online shop, here: Snack Size Pincushions Pattern

At this time it will not be available as a printed pattern. I'd love to do more patterns for smaller projects like this. What do you think? Is there a particular type of pattern you're on the lookout for? :)

Happy Sewing!


  1. Your little pincushion are SEW CUTE!

  2. These are adorable Jeni.
    I love making tiny blocks and have a box with zillions in them. Do you stuff them with walnut shells fully? or a combination of stuffing and other things?

  3. Thanks! I stuff mine completely with the walnut shells! :)

  4. I love tiny pieced pincushions! So cute!
