Making a Three Tiered Crochet Pin Cushion
July 14, 2016
This pin cushion is for the serious seamstress. With just yarn, a hook, and stuffing, you can make this for yourself or as a gift.
Total Time: 3 hours
- 120 yd yarn ($1.00)
- 40 yd yarn ($.75)
- 25 yd yarn ($.50)
- 1 size J hook ($0.00)
- darning needle
- 1 oz stuffing ($0.00)
- For the largest pillow, using your J hook, chain 40. Make your first stitch in the first chain from the hook, skip 1/chain 1 and make your next single crochet in the 3rd chain. Repeat to the end, chain 1 and repeat till you have 36 or so rows, or your work is a square. Make 1.
- When it's ready to fold over in the corners, sew them on 3 sides like an envelope and then stuff.
- For the second pillow, make 2 grannies six rows each. There are to be no holes except for the corners, so this is one that has 2 in the first row, 5 in the next, 8, and then 11, and then 14, and then 17.
- Sew them together. I wanted the two solid colors to be enhanced by the variegated color, so I used that color to sew the edges. You can do it the same color if you want. Stuff after 3 sides are done.
- The smaller pillow is a chain 17 and make 1 single crochet per across and turn, repeating till you have 16 rows. For a solid crochet stitch, you need that extra chain in the beginning. Make 2. I lost camera power to show you the last stuffing step, but you get it by now. Sew all 3 sides together and stuff.
- For the tie, chain about 3 yards. Start on the top of the pillows and wrap around the bottom, cross, then bring back and tie.
- I put needles in the top, straight pins in the middle, and safety pins on the bottom.
