Free Pincushion Patterns

A pincushion is a staple item in a sewing room - almost everyone remembers mom's tomato pincushion with the strawberry that was for needles (the strawberry contained emery which would keep the needles sharp). Nowadays, pincushions appear in almost any shape or form to suit your fancy. There are tons of free pincushion patterns that can be found on the internet including flowers of many sorts, a dragonfly, mushrooms, sewing organizers. Below, I have linked to a few of my favorite free pincushion patterns. If you are looking for more pincushion inspiration, I also have a list of over 85 free pincushion patterns. If you come across any that I haven't included here, please let me know so I can add it to my list!
