Thread to match fabric
Polyfill (pillow stuffing)
Fabric 1/2 a yard will be more than enough
Interfacing 1/2 a yard (medium weight/ fusible)
Glue Gun or fabric glue (something quick drying)
Velcro 1 inches wide – 3 inches long (a matching color)
Cut 1 piece of fabric 9/12 inches round (a plate is a good guide)
Cut 1 piece of interfacing 9/12 inches round
Cut 1 piece fabric 10 inches long 3 ½ inches wide
Cut 1 piece interfacing 10 inches long 3 ½ inches wide
Cut 1 piece fabric 2 inches long – 2 inches wide
*quick tip* cut fabric and interfacing together at same time.
Hand Stitch around the edge of the fabric/ interfacing circle. Then pull thread to gather together into a cup like shape. Be sure not to tie or pull completely together, leave an opening for stuffing.
Stuff the circle cup with polyfill, overflow a little bit, then pull thread together to tighten gathering, enclosing polyfill in the cup or puff of fabric.
Pull thread as tight as possible and hand sew the opening together, keep pulling thread as needed as you sew to ensure its really sewn tight. Then shape the 2×2 inch piece of fabric into a oblong shape.
Warm glue gun or prepare fabric glue. Apply glue to wrong side of fabric and quickly place over stitched area and press firmly to secure stitched area. You can put it aside to dry if need, while you work on the next step.
Time to prepare the strap. Fold strap in half and turn on wrong right, stitch opposite ends together, leaving top open. Turn top raw edge down and press, turn on right side and top stitch around all edges as shown.
Time for some hand work. Pin Strap to pin cushion. Thread a need with matching thread. Tack stitch the strap, in four corners securely, be sure to repeat stitch over each corner about 10 times, to ensure its secure.
