My Afghan Baby Pin Cushion Pattern is ideal for a beginner to tackle, especially if you’ve never attempted Tunisian Stitch before. It’s simple, easy to follow, and there’s no increasing or decreasing [shaping] to be concerned with.
The Afghan Stitch creates a strong, closely worked fabric which is ideal for holding pins. The flowers used to decorate the pin cushion are worked separately and sewn on using a darning needle with a blunt end.
This is a project which you can make to use up left over yarn from other items if you wish. Consider making the two sides in different colored yarn for example, and the flowers in varying colors. I filled the afghan baby pin cushion with fiber fill, but you could use foam if you prefer. The afghan baby pin cushion edging is worked in trebles and double crochet, and you will find detailed directions on how to create these stitches in my e-book “CROCHET MADE EASY”, that you may purchase here. More information on my e-book contents page.
If the terminology used in this pattern differs from what you're used to, check my equivalency tables for easy conversion. Happy Crocheting!
