April Pincushion PDF Quilt Pattern | A Year of Pincushions Series



This little drum-shaped pincushion is sure to add some charm to your sewing room. And the question is: Will you be able to make just one? Or will you make several just like we did?

This is the 4th pincushion in our Year Of Pincushions Series. It is a little smaller than the other ones and it can be made a little quicker since it consists only of a top panel and a tube-shaped side panel. It is perfect for gift making and by changing out the fabric colors it can fit any season and mood.

The pattern comes in two alternate sizes.

*This is a PDF pattern available for instant download. Nothing will be shipped to you.*
