My 7 year old daughter wanted to make a gift for a friend of ours who has just had an operation and is resting at home. She decided on a pincushion and then decided to personalise it with the letter E. We chose a simple square cushion design as this would be the most easiest and quickest for my daughter to make!
- 2 pieces of different coloured felt (or other fabric if you wish)
- A needle and some embroidery thread.
Step 2: Cut out the required letter, making sure it is smaller so that it fits inside the square shape with some spare space.
Step 3: Stitch the letter onto one of the squares. You could make little star designs like my daughter has done too.
Step 4: Place the other square piece underneath and then stitch around three sides attaching the two pieces together.
Step 5: Place some stuffing into the cushion.
Step 6: Then stitch the last side of the cushion making sure the end id#s fastened securely.
My other daughter also wanted to make a present for our friend, she designed a lovely vanilla candle. We wrapped up all the presents including a handmade card and took it around to her house today!
