The Pin My Heart Cushion is the perfect home decor piece for my fellow crafty people out there. The soft sheen of the cotton and the vintage vibes of the lacy edging, paired with the heart in pink or red shades, make this crochet pincushion the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day! As the name suggests, the cushion is intended to be used as a pincushion, thus being perfect for any fibre art aficionado, but I think it will also be great as an ornament!
THE PATTERN IN A NUTSHELL
Size of finished object: ca. 14 x 14 cm (5.5” x 5.5”) including the lacy edging
This pattern is written in English and uses standard US crochet terminology.
- 2.5 mm hook
- Tapestry needle or yarn needle
- Stitch counter – optional
- Fingering or fine weight yarn. I used Catania by Schachenmayr for the light colour and Catona by Scheepjes in colour Ruby for the heart.
Watch how fluffy and smooth the cushion is!
