Here at Boys & Bunting, we’re addicted to Instagram! Since Instagram only lives on our phones, we wanted to bring it into our home. That’s why we came up with this cute little needle cushion! If you decide to make one yourself, don’t forget to hashtag it with: #instapincushion
This would also make for a great toy for kids to play with! (without the needles!)

This pattern is filled with very clear instructions and lots of photos!
Basic stitch knowledge needed, but nothing too fancy!


Yarn (Beige, Dark Brown, Black and scraps of Red, Orange, Yellow, Green and Blue

Stuffing to fill your needle cushion

Yarn & Hook

Any type of yarn can be used for this project. We chose a synthetic yarn, but this project would look great with cotton as well. Make sure to use a hook size smaller than the the yarn label recommends, to ensure a neat and tight project where the stuffing won’t show through. We went with a DK weight yarn Wolle Rödel - Universal and used a 4 mm hook.
