Knitted Shabby Chic Pin Cushions
Please visit my blog at Knit ‘n Kaboodle and have a look around. Feel free to leave a comment or ask a question, and don’t forget to feed the fishies! :)
There are two sections to this pattern: The first gives the pattern for knitting the pin cushion inside the box and the second focuses on instructions for painting the box to achieve the shabby chic look. The complete project is broken down into 10 easy steps. This project is a lot of fun, very easy, and you’ll want to make some for all of the seamstresses and quilters you know.
There are several sources for purchasing the Paper Mache embossed boxes. Here are a few:
Skill level is beginner.
Stitches: Knit, cast-on, bind-off.
Worked flat on straight knitting needles.
Please feel free to contact me with any question. Thank you for looking!
