Triangle Pincushion (Tutorial)

Isn’t it funny and interesting how one gets ideas to create something? When I was making the triangle cushion I did not do the math beforehand as to how many triangles in what color I would need. So I ended up with too many triangles, no big deal. After I had finished the cushion I looked at those long haired, oddly shaped objects, and all of a sudden lightning struck, aha!

And don’t you love it when you can work out the idea/picture you have in your head into something real, and to such an extent that the final result totally matches the photo-in-the-head that it all started with.
Well, I’ll be the first to admit that there are quite a few projects sitting somewhere in my craft room unfinished, but this pincushion-idea really worked well.
It is a great stash buster project, a quick fix when you’re bored with that never-ending blanket, and they simply make me smile!
You’ll find the link to the tutorial here (or above) – have loads of fun making them and please do share any of your triangle creations!

Love,
Marianne

  2. Greetings! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment
    form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

    • Hi Simon,

      I would have loved to help you out, but I honestly have no idea what you should do to fix your problem. You see, I have the cheaper WordPress-version – ;) – and therefore I don’t work with plugins, but widgets. Good luck, Marianne

  3. Do you have a pattern for the actual pillow and not the pincushion? Can’t find a pattern quite like this.

    • Hi Sabrina,
      I’m afraid I do not have an actual pattern for this pillow; I just played around with the triangles until I found a layout that I liked color wise and stitched them together – that simple! xx
