Easy Sew Cactus Pincushion

This is such an easy and quick project. You can use a sewing machine or sew it by hand to create a fun way to organize all your pins

You will need:

  • A4 piece of green felt
  • Scissors
  • Stuffing
  • Cotton
  • Needle
  • Sewing machine (optional)


Divide your felt into 6 equal sized pieces and cut them into the shape below. You should have 6 pieces of felt.

Sew 2 pieces together, leaving the straight side open. Repeat until you have 3 pieces. Put the 3 pieces together and sew a line down the middle joining your pieces.

Use the stuffing to fill your cactus.

Use a sewing needle and some thread to sew the bottom closed.

Put your completed cactus in a small pot, I used one of my daughter toy pot plants and spray painted it copper

I hope this easy sewing project adds a fun touch to your creative space.
