For this project, you will need:
- 3 inch or 3.5 inch square of fabric - the pin cushion will sit on your pointer finger. For larger fingers, I recommend the 3.5 inch square
- Fiberfill or polyfill
- Craft awl or other pointed tool (chopsticks work great!)
- Needle, thread and scissors
Step 1: Fold your 3 inch or 3.5 inch square on the diagonal
Step 2: Stitch both open ends of the triangle leaving a one inch gap on one side for turning and stuffing the cushion
You can hand sew, but I chose to machine stitch to provide extra durability. In addition, you would normally select a thread color to match your chosen fabric. For illustrative purposes, I used black thread to show the stitching line and the one inch gap.
Step 3: Turn fabric right-side out
Your craft awl or pointed tool will prove useful here to push the corners out.
Step 4: Fill finger pin cushion with fiberfill or polyfill
You will want to firmly fill the pin cushion so that the pins don't poke your finger; however, you don't have to completely pack the side corners as these will be used to form the ring shape.
Step 5: Fold the two loosely packed corners or points over and overlap to fit finger. Stitch in place
You can adjust the size of the finger pin cushion by overlapping the corners more or less as needed.
And voilà! You are now ready to put pins in the cushion and stitch away.
