Mandi from Common Threads is here to teach us how to make a Grannie Square Pin Cushion.

She says…
It was a quick little project and I think that they might just make cute gifts (Christmas or anytime) for my crafty friends and family!

I recently received a ton of yarn and fabric from a family friend (thank you Myrna!) and in one of the boxes of goodies was this cute little granny square! It is so much neater and prettier than mine usually are so I figured I should put it to good use…but as what??

I have been adoring lacey and doily pincushions lately and I realized that this square could make a pretty little pincushion. I have included a granny square pincushion in a past Friday Favourites and there is also a great little granny square tutorial here!

Here is how I made mine!

You will need:
– 1 granny square
– felt
– stuffing
– needle and thread

1. Cut 2 squares of felt slightly larger than your granny square.
I made mine 4 inches by 4 inches.

2. Sew three sides together.

3. Flip square out so seems are on the inside.

Stuff felt square and sew last seem together so you
end up with a stuffed felt square.

4. Sew granny square to top of felt square.

And you are done! This is how the pincushion turned out and I am really enjoying it so far!

Common Thread is giving away a lovely Grannie Square Pin Cushion on their site this week. Check it out!

And remember… any comment here on Prudent Baby this week might win you that pretty Alexander Henry fat quarter.




this is so genius and adorable! what a cute thing to use as a gift topper for a person who loves sewing! can't you see it like a little bow right on top of a box!


I have some granny squares that my Grannie made — but not enough to do any other projects with. I was at a loss! Until now…. Grannie's Granny Square will become my new pincushion.

Thanks for the tute!


I love it! I'm enjoying crocheting granny squares and I DESPERATELY need a pin cushion, there are pins everywhere in my house!
