Pattern written in UK terms,
These granny square pin cushions measure approximately 8cm and can be made with any granny squares but I have written out the method I used below, similarly you could decorate with any kind of crochet flowers. I have attached a few photos to help with the flat flower I used for this pattern. The inserts are non-removable and are made by simply sewing (either by hand or on a sewing machine) two small squares of fabric together and stuffing with toy filling. The granny squares are then crocheted together around the insert.
Yarn: 4 ply Cotton 2 colours – I used a variety of different brands, they all worked well as long as it’s not too stiff.
Scissors (I use pinking shears to stop fraying)
Two small pieces of cotton fabric for insert – I used some Calico
Cardboard, ruler & pencil for template
Some polyester toy filling
Sewing machine or needle and thread
