Star Shaped Hanging Pincushion

The pattern for this beautiful five pointed star hanging pincushion is from 1893. It would make a perfect Christmas gift for anyone who does needlework.

Star shaped Pincushion with scissors.

Star Pin Cushion

The star shaped pincushion, with scissors, above, is composed of five sections of satin or silk; they may be all of one color, or five different colors may be used. Each section measures three and one-half inches from point to point in length, and two inches in width.

The sections are each tightly stuffed with bran, and are sewed together by the shortest sides. Two lengths of cord are stretched together over the joining stitches, and the edges of the vandykes are finished with cord. The scissors are suspended from the cushion by rings attached to ribbon one inch wide.

A loop with bow-and-ends of ribbon is fixed to the top point.
