IMPORTANT INFO: This is a PDF SEWING PATTERN you download and print at home.
Sew a pretty pincushion cuff with this SEWING PATTERN.
Being able to wear your pincushion is so convenient! No more getting something ready to pin only to find the pincushion has gone missing, or is just out of reach.
This project is almost entirely sewn by machine. The only hand stitching is closing the opening at the bottom of the rose, and since this seam is hidden it doesn't need to be done neatly.
The cuff is designed to fit a wrist about 5.75" - 6.25" (145mm - 160cm). The length can be varied by adding/subtracting from the longer edges of piece E, using a wider SA, moving the VELCRO, etc.
Please check dimensions below against a ruler. Close up photos make the flower appear larger than in real life. The flower is small so it's comfortable to wear and doesn't get in your way while sewing.
This PDF document is a paper and ink friendly 9-pages: 6-pages of text and color photo instructions + 3-pages of black and white pattern pieces/templates.
This pattern is perfect for teaching as a sewing class! I'd suggest allowing 4 hours to give everyone time to complete the cuff at a somewhat leisurely pace.
