Like many of you, my mom taught me to sew when I was a young girl and one of my most vivid memories of that time is the crowded tomato pincushion she use to keep right next to the sewing machine. Since then, tons of different pincushions have come in and out of my life but my favorites are still food-based ones that look adorable while still holding tons of sewing pins. When I saw these adorable mini wood baskets from David Tutera’s wedding line for Darice, I just knew I had to show you how to make a pincushion strawberry basket. Hope you love it as much as I do!
How to Make a Pincushion Strawberry Basket Supplies:

Step 5. Cut a 6″ circle out of the red felt and again, baste around the edges with a needle and thread. Pull thread to cinch large circle and sew shut with the needle. Place this red puff in the wood basket and set aside. We’ll be using it a bit later to sew the strawberries on top of.
Step 9. Working one at a time, sew the strawberries to the larger red poof in the wood basket. You may want to stitch them to each other as well as the red poof. I did a circle of 6 strawberries for the base.
