You need at least one at each of your sewing stations, plus pin cushions to hold hand-stitching needles and safety pins as well as straight pins, and don’t forget one for your sewing basket. Of course, some people seek out pin cushions simply to collect them—a reminder of the fun and creativity sewing brings.

About the Free Stamped Faux Quilted Heart Pin Cushion Pattern
This pin cushion sewing pattern features a hand-stamped design that you can customize to make your own. You could also repurpose a scrap of quilted material or a piece of a vintage cutter quilt to make the top. We used a running stitch to accent the machine-stitched lines and replicate the look of hand quilting. But you could embroider anyway you like, for example with a chain stitch, feather stitch, or split stitch. The back of the pin cushion is cut from muslin, but here again you can personalize with contrasting wool felt, fleece, or commercial fabric. The pin cushion is stuffed with Poly-fil® and weighted down with a few Glasslets (small glass beads) to help keep it in place on your sewing surface.
