Sylvia’s Patchwork Blog


You can match the back and front of the pincushions of place them randomly.


Patchwork is a great way of using up small bits of fabric. The pin cushions are hand stitched hexagon design and retail at £5.00 each. Choosing co-ordinating colours is great fun.  The pictures show the stages for assembly.



Hand sew each hexagon to the centre one and then join all the sides before sewing the back to the front with blanket stitch.

The trivets are machine stitched in a log cabin design. The backs have an envelope opening so that herb sachets can be inserted if desired creating a pleasing aroma under a hot pan. These retail at £4.50 each. 

Memory cushions/quilts/totes can be a lovely gift for offspring leaving home for the first time. Scraps from favourite clothing incorporated into a useful item can be a constant reminder of family life. Something to hug when they are missing you.
