F is for . . . FINGER Pin Cushion

. at . 14 comments

This is the post, FINGER PIN CUSHION, that inspired my creation. It has the directions and several examples. 

My Four Tips & Observations

  1. I had my doubts. I wasn’t sure that the pom-pom would actually hold the pins. But it does!
  2. This is a 12 minute craft – at most! It took me 12 minutes to make this. And that included the time it took me to go to my car to get the supplies and park my car nearer to my apartment.
  3. I had trouble with the elastic. I hot glued the first end of the elastic to the bottle cap. Then I had my daughter help cut and then hot glue the other end. After I was done I found that Nancy (the originator of this craft) had linked to another post that gave more instructions.
  4. I’ll use this on my thumb. The one change I made is to use this on my thumb. It is a more natural way for me to use the pin cushion.

I intend to make several more as gifts and some for my Operation Christmas Child boxes.

I linked this to the Craft Room De-Stash Challenge. The submitted August projects are at the bottom of the post. You can request to join our Facebook group here! #CraftRoomDestashChallenge

    I love this idea! I sew every now and then and I get frustrated easily when I need to look for the pins all the time 😉

      now you don’t have to have any more frustration. Gather the few needed supplies, plug in your glue gun and in less than 12 minutes you too will have a cute pin cushion.
      I hope you attach a photo when you are done.

    If it takes 12 minutes or less then I could probably do it. Thanks for this. It is super cute.

      Yes, do it. And then let me know how fast you finished your pin cushion. The time clock is ticking!


  • Adorable and functional at the same time. Thanks for sharing.

    Isn’t it fun when something functional is also adorable? My fave kind of project.

    It’s great that such a functional item is quick to make. And cute, too!

      Thanks. Sometimes I NEED a quick project to work on. This one certainly fit that category.


  • What a great idea! As I sew, I am always looking for my pin cushion. Is it on the ironing board? Cutting table? Next to the sewing machine? This is a perfect solution! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures
