Scrappy Little Pincushion

Scrappy Knit Pin CushionsI have been trying to knit and crochet through my stash this summer and that includes using up some of those little balls of scraps I have tucked away in baskets. This weekend I made a couple of quick and nifty little pin cushions after I saw a how-to post over on Craft Leftovers. I made a little one for my pins, needles, and little scissors then I whipped another out from my super bulky stash to hold my crochet hooks.

This is a super easy project that doesn’t even require any stuffing and is all garter stitch! You just knit a straight strip then sew the ends together, fold them over lengthwise, then stack them inside each other like little nesting dolls!

I got both of them finished in half a day and they would make great little gifts too!
