Sew a pretty and practical pincushion cuff with this PDF SEWING PATTERN.
Once you start using a pincushion cuff, you'll wonder why you didn't start using one sooner. No more getting something ready to pin something only to find the pincushion nowhere to be found, or is juuuuust out of reach.
This project is almost entirely sewn by machine. The only hand stitching is closing the opening at the bottom of the rose and attaching the rose to the cuff.
Making this cuff is not difficult, but it does have small pieces that require attention to detail.
The cuff is designed to fit a wrist about 5.75" - 6.25" (145mm - 160cm). The length can be varied by adding/subtracting from the longer edges of piece E, using a wider SA, moving the VELCRO, etc.
Please check dimensions below against a ruler. Close up photos make the flower appear larger than in real life. The flower is small so it's comfortable to wear and doesn't get in your way while sewing.
This PDF document is a paper and ink friendly 9-pages total: 6-pages of text and color photo instructions + 3-pages of black and white pattern pieces/templates.
