Posie Pins Tutorial and Swap

Looking around the internet there are a lot of cute pins out there.  I came up with a little flower pin topper– a posie flower.   Made with fabric scraps and a few quick stitches and you will in no time have a whole bundle of them!

Posie Flower Pin Tutorial | patchwork posse #needles #pins #quilt  Whether or not they are useful, who cares….. they are cute standing there on the pincushion.  That is their job. Cuteness.

They would make a great addition to any pin cushion you have around, or for a little something extra as a gift.


 Materials needed:

* pins. round heads are great.

* Scraps of fabric

* Needle and Thread

Intructions for Flower Pins:

1)  Cut 2 pieces of scraps into a circle or oval shape….. around 1 1/2 inches wide and 1″ tall.  Nothing patterny here.  Just eyeball it. It will turn out just fine.

2)  Place the fabric WRONG SIDES TOGETHER. Stick the pin in the center of the 2 scraps

3)  Fold the 2 pieces up and hold in place while making a few stitches around the ball head. This will keep the fabric in place. Knot it at the end. You can use matching thread or try invisible– if you are doing a few with lots of different colors. If you can keep from snipping the thread in the next step you can leave the thread, easier for step 5.

4)  Snip the edges of the 1/2 circle.  See photo above.

5)  Take the two outside edges and fold them to the center.  Make a few stitches here to keep them together. Pull it tight so they meet togeher.  Knot the thread and snip.

6)  Fluff the raw edges a bit to loosen them up and have them ravel a bit.


Cute stuff huh?!  And no polin, sniffing noses, or weepy eyes even.  Perfect for any stitcher.

Gather a few for a boquette— or just have them hang out randomly in the field……

    Hi, your posie pins are real cute. I was just wondering if you’re going to have another Grundle like swap? I was in the one before Christmas. I was a lot of fun. I’m not a quilter I’m more into dolls & stufies. Thanks, SharaLee
