How to Finish a Cross Stitch Pin Cushion and Scissor Fob

Assembling the Pin Cushion

1. The back stitch around the edge of design will be your sewing line for assembly.

2. Back stitch a 2nd piece of linen the same size for the back piece. Trim both fabric pieces, leaving 3/8” fabric for the seam allowance, and fold back the edges along the sewing line.

3. Sew the top and bottom pieces together using a Whip stitch - take a stitch under the back stitching line on front piece, and then through the back stitch line on the back piece.

4. Stop sewing when there is 2 “ left. Fill with your choice of filling, then finish stitching the bottom side, securing your thread with a hidden knot.
