DIY Mannequin Pin Cushions

I came up with the idea to make a DIY mannequin pin cushion for my sewing room.  I really thought it was a cute original idea until I saw this terrific pattern and video on the DIYdish.  Rather than using the pattern I managed to eek out using a jewelry model I have and that you have seen in previous photos I decided to use the one from DIYdish with a link to that site and proper attribution. So this is not a pattern of my own but it is so cute I thought to share my own tutorial as well as the video posted on the other website.  I hope you all give it a try it is easy to make and a terrific pin cushion for your sewing room.

What you will Need:

  • Pattern
  • 1 fat quarter of fabric
  • Fiberfill
  • 1/4″ thick foam board
  • Small oval of felt
  • 1 candlestick or some other tall base
  • 1 button (optional)
  • 1 Mini Christmas ornament or cabinet knob
  • Hot Glue

Turn right side out.  Stuff the pin cushion with the fiberfill so that it is tightly stuffed but there is a little fabric left around the bottom.

Step 7: DIY Mannequin Pin Cushion

If you would like to add a brooch to your mannequin,  take a length of fabric and sew a running stitch along the length.  Pull the running stitch so that the fabric scrunches into a flower shape. Knot the ends and add a button to the center and sew it to your mannequin.  You can also add lace or other trim to make your pin cushion your own.  Your DIY mannequin pin cushion is now finished.
