My hand-y pincushion (with pattern and tute)

Here is the basic pattern for my hand-y pincushion as posted on

Trace the pattern onto freezer paper and iron onto your fabric. Cut 2 of the hand and one of the end piece. Make sure right sides are facing, and it is time to sew!

Sew all around hand leaving bottom open. Sew end piece to half of wrist area leaving it open, and turn right sides out. Sew a line down from either side of the middle finger so that each of the 3 fingers is defined (do not do this before turning!).

Stuff hand firmly with polyfil, using screwdriver or pen to get stuffing into the fingers and thumb.Ladder-stitch the end piece closed.You now have a hand pincushion that you can leave plain or decorate as you choose!
