Free Tutorial

Here is a fun pattern and how to on a wedding cake pin cushion.
Wedding Cake Pin Cushion
This is dedicated to the two cute ladies that always come into the Sandy store that always have a smile on their faces. This is for you gals!!!!

The items you will need to create this darling pin cushion are:
1 black, white and red felt squares
1/2 yd of medium sized ric rac, black,white and red
a glue gun
buttons for embellishing
1/4 yd of stiff heavy non-iron on interfacing
a scrap of cute fabric big enough to cut a 5 inch circle

Take each color of felt and with a Olfa rotary cutter, ruler and mat cut your strips for each tier of cake.
The bottom tier is out of black felt. Cut 5 strips at 1 1/2 inches wide and the length of a a felt square. Repeat with middle tier that is red and cut 3 strips 1 /14 in wide
Top tier is white with 1 strip 1 inch wide and another that is 1 inch by 3 inches long.

Start rolling your felt strips, starting with the bottom tier, your black felt. Keep rolling each piece on right next to the last until you have used all 5 pieces. (look and picture below on how to add each piece)

Adding the next strip.

Then you want to hot glue with glue gun the last rolled on strip. Then repeat these steps with the red and white felt.

Then take your ric rac pieces the red needs to be cut 8 1/2 inches long, white is 6 1/4 inches, and 4 1/2 for the black. Hot glue to the back side of rolled cake tier where the seam is and press down your ric rac.Roll around the cake and add another dot of hot glue to finish attaching ric rac. Repeat with the other tiers. Red goes on the black tier, white on the red tier and black on the top tier of cake.

Now your ready to make the plate the cake will sit on. I found a baby cereal bowl that was five inches around and traced it onto the heavy interfacing. I then cut the circle out.You just need one 5 inch circle.

Then I pinned the heavy interfacing onto my scrap of fabric and cut a 1/4 inch seam around the circle. You need two of these fabric circles cut out.

Place your inter facing inbetween the two pieces of fabric with the right sides of the fabric showing on top and on bottom
Sew around the edge using a 1/4 inch seam allowance. I used a decorative stitch and it made it really cute.

Take your pinking shears and trim around the edges to give it a cute finished edge.

Assemble by hot gluing the black tier onto the plate and then glue the red tier and follow with the white.
Then to finish off this cute pin cushion you can embellish with yoyos and vintage buttons. On mine I made the small yo-yo and then hot glued a vintage button from my great grandma's button collection.

You are now finished and you have a darling pincushion that you can put in your sewing room or give away as a fun little gift. It doesn't even cost that much to make and all the supplies can be purchased at The Cotton Shop. You can even change it up by doing all different colors of felt and ric rac. HAPPY DAY!!!!
