Hexagon Pincushion & Needle Book {Tutorial and Template}

I’m not sure what’s gotten in to me lately. I thought I had beaten the procrastination thing, but now, it is rearing it’s ugly head. I just finished my pincushion for the Scrappy Pincushion Swap today…the mailing deadline! But, I thought this pincushion turned out so cute that I plan to make some more, and thought maybe I wasn’t the only one. So, here is the Hexagon Pincushion Template for you to download.

Super Easy Directions:

  1. Use the template and your favorite hexagon method.
  2. Hand stitch the hexagons together at the seams until you have a hexagon flower.
  3. Cut out two circles from the templates – one cream and one print, and stitch the flower on the cream circle.
  4. Then stitch, right sides together, leaving a 1 1/2″ opening, turn right sides out, and fill with stuffing.
  5. Whip stitch the opening closed, and stitch the centers together {you can add a button if you’d like!}.

And, voila! A cute little pincushion.


I also made this cute needle holder. If you want to make one to hang with your sewing stuff, it’s easy too!


  1. Cut two 4″ squares of fabric and a 3 1/4″ square of felt.
  2. Interface the wrong side of one of the squares and sew centered felt across the top of the other.
  3. Use a 4 1/2″ x 2″ scrap of fabric, folded as for biased binding, to make the loop.
  4. Pin the loop to the top of one of the squares, pointing down, and sew the squares, right sides together, and turned them.
  5. Finish with a 1/8″ top stitch {no need to whip stitch, the top stitching will close up your opening}.

If you make these, we’d love for you to add them to our Flickr group.

    Can you please post the template for the Hexagon again, I am having trouble accessing it as when I click on your words it goes to signing in to blogger, others are having the same problem. Thank you for sharing your tutorials.

    Adorable picture!

    I’m sewing custom orders this week–setting the alarm for 4:00 a.m. and staying up late trying to keep up, but I am very grateful for these projects.

    I love this little pincushion! The link for the template doesn’t seem to be working, though. Is this still available?
