Pincushion Patterns Galore: 125+ FREE Sewing Patterns

Pincushion PatternsPincushions are essential

Pincushions are really one of those essential sewing tools.  Like solid sewing scissors and a good measuring tape, it's almost impossible to imagine sewing properly without a good pincushion. Like many sewists, I actually have a few that serve different purposes.  I use the one I keep on my wrist while sewing most often but I recently decided to make another as my husband keeps giving me a hard time about all the pins lying around on my sewing room floor.

In that spirit, I wanted to put together the world's best list of pin cushion patterns for your reference and enjoyment.  Hopefully, you'll be able to find every possible pincushion that can be imagined.  Myself, I was amazed at the variety and how long the list became when I just kept looking.  Please enjoy!
