Making a Wrist Pincushion "With Heart and Hands"


While previously watching another pincushion challenge going around blogland, I was motivated by the dilapidated condition of my own favorite wrist pincushion, to make a new one...and this time take photos of the process!

I especially love this creation, which I designed several years ago, because it also works as a wrist protector/support band for my over-used wrist and its issues ;) It can be made with either one very wide piece of elastic inserted inside (like my original version) or with channels that hold several thinner rows of elastic (like I had...pardon the pun...on hand) to use here.

In this youtube tutorial, "The Chicken Pincushion", from the Missouri Quilt Company, Jenny demonstrates how to make an adorable pincushion that can be customized to fit your own style. 

Everyone loves this little chicken not only because it’s quick and easy to put together, but also because it is a great project to use up leftover charms or orphan blocks. Click HERE now to watch The Chicken Pincushion Tutorial!

Or click here, if you're on metered Internet or just prefer a free printable pattern. There are so many of them, but do remember that it took a very long time and the passing of its inventor to come into the free share ware world of free quilting and project tutorials. 

So, many quilters take other's patterns and pass them off as their own on the Interent that it's always important to give credit where credit is due and almost nothing is original anymore! Someone has created it before you ever did! 


With Heart and Hands: Free Sewing Accessories Patterns: Updated 2014:

Free Sewing Accessories: Patterns, Tutorials, Ideas and Links!

With Heart and Hands: Free Sewing Accessories Patterns: Updated 2013 My sewing room includes many accessories that I have designed and created, myself. I love general sewing as much as I love quilting. So, whether I am sewing with my bigger Viking Sapphire 870 Quilt... or my much tinier ...Singer Featherweight...every one in our family gets new 'clothes', accessories, and fun craft and quilting supplies! (here's some one else's free pattern that is a different take on mine, above. I never saw hers' ahead of time, and am hoping she didn't see mine, as I don't see a link back for me ;-) But,  I don't mind sharing what I do, and still linking up to other people who've done what I did a little differently!


Singer Featherweight: Sewing Accessories (small mat and a snippets bag) Tutorial

I've made my own sewing machine pocket mats, magnetic wrist pincushions and wrist protectors, pincushions, pattern weights, snippets threadcatchers, roll-up scissors holders and many different sized tote bags for quilting supplies.

But I must confess, I do so love making Sewing Accessories of all kinds!

Michele Bilyeu blogs With Heart and Hands as she shares a quilting journey through her life in Salem, Oregon and Douglas, Alaska. Sewing, quilting, and wildcrafting, with small format art quilts, prayer flags, and comfort quilts for a variety of charitable programs. And best of all, sharing thousands of links to Free Quilt and Quilt Block Patterns and encouraging others to join her and make and donate quilts to charitable causes. Help us change the world, one little quilt at a time!
