Pin Cushion Bag Pattern Available Again from Connecting Threads!

Last fall, I made my first pin cushion bag from a pattern I had purchased from Connecting Threads. I loved making the pattern - it was fun and easy and so quick! I also loved using their fabrics - the colors and designs were so soft and pretty and the fabric just felt good. Here is the bag I used as a fall giveaway...

Pincushion Bag and Needle BookThe bag and needle book took altogether less than two hours to make so this is a quick project using just basic sewing skills.

Black and White Pin Cushion BagUsing the same pattern, but fabric I had purchased at my local shop, I made this pin cushion bag as a gift for my sister. She had seen my first one and loved it, so she asked me to make her one in blacks and whites.

Whenever I checked the Connecting Threads website over the past many months, I looked for this pattern each time. Each time I was disappointed that it was not there. So finally I emailed the company and asked if it would ever be made available for purchase again.

I am very excited to pass on some good news from Connecting Threads about the Pin Cushion Bag pattern that I thought was no longer available. They have brought it back for their new line of fabric called Twilight Frost and you can find it by clicking HERE.

So if you are intrigued by this darling little sewing bag, go check it out at Connecting Threads. For only $11.92, you get the pattern with full size templates and 8 fat quarters of their new Twilight Frost fabric. The only things you have to add are thread, something for the drawstrings, a little bit of stuffing for the pin cushion in the middle and something sturdy for the base of the pin cushion like a circle cut from the lid of a coffee can.

Editor's Note: I failed to mention that this kit includes enough fabric to make 2, yes that's right, TWO pin cushion bags!

It's such a fun little project and would make a lovely gift for yourself or someone special. And just so you know, I have no relationship of any kind with Connecting Threads. I just like to share good news when it comes my way!

Happy Stitching!
