If you enjoy sewing, you have probably already developed a love of pincushions. They’re, of course, a great way to keep track of any spare pins and needles but perhaps more than that, they can be super cute!
Nothing about this Strawberry Pincushion is beyond the abilities of even the most novice sewer. It’s pretty much just a bunch of straight lines and french knots. Hand-sewing all the strawberries together may take a bit of time but in the end, you’ll have an adorable (and useful!) pincushion sitting on your desk!

Instructions for Strawberry Pincushion
Begin by cutting out 9 3.5″ circles out of the red felt. Cut approximately 1/3 away (As seen in Image 1). Fold the felt in half and sew along the flat edge (Image 2). This can be done by hand or with a sewing machine. Flip cone shape right side out and add loose stitch around the top edge (Image 3). Fill with Poly-fil and pull thread to close. Secure with double knot. (Image 4).
Add “seeds” to berries. Cut approximately 1″ squares from the green felt. Trim from each corner to create strawberry leaf shape. Sew in place to the top of the strawberry.
Cut a 6″ red felt circle. Baste around the top edge, fill with Poly-fil, and then pull string tight to close. Secure with double-knot and place in basket. Almost done with your Strawberry Pincushion!
Sew each strawberry in place on top of the red puff. Don’t forget to alternate their positions slightly so that it looks more natural.
Perfect for Your Sewing Desk
I just love how sweet and little this tiny Strawberry Pincushion is! It’s about 3″ wide so it’ll fit on even the smallest of sewing spaces. Hope you enjoy making one!
