Oh hello there, welcome to a SAH-WEET
 giveaway and blog hop...AND tutorial!

I am here today with this fun "Pocket Pin Cushion" that I created
and I want to share just  how I created this pin cushion so you can make your own. 
I also used some Button Lovers- buttons as accents. 
Here are the instructions just for you!
Trim out 2 pieces of Samantha Walker fabric in 4.5"X4.5" you could make this 
5" or smaller if you like but smaller would be more difficult to stitch. 
Fold both piece of fabric in half and cut at angle on the bottom as shown
to create the bottom of the pocket.
Trim out 1 2"X20" strip from coordinating striped fabric.
From coordinating houndstooth fabric cut 1- 2.5"X4.5" strip.
Fold bottom of houndstooth fabric over and stitch onto pocket as shown.
Neatly stitch coordinating strip all along top of pocket.
Follow same stitching on the bottom except leave a 2-3" hole to
turn right way and stuff. I highly suggest you take a moment to
think about which way fabric will sit before stitching as I
stitched mine the wrong way and had to tear open and restitch! LOL
Flip pocket the right way through the hole.
Stuff, and stitch hop closed.
Hand sew on buttons or anything else super fun and VIOLA!
Pocket pink cushion, perfect for that seamstress in your life.
OR you could even fill it with perfume or oils for a scent bag
in a drawer.
Now for the good stuff!

Adorable. Your pocket is so much cuter than the styrofoam block my pins are stuck in. I must try and make a pin cushion!!!
