Dumpling Pincushion

Do you have a sewist on you Christmas list and you haven’t quite figured out the perfect gift? Well, we have you covered with this cute little dumpling shaped pincushion by Julia Williams of Alchemy Tea. The Dumpling Pincushion is small enough to fit in the palm of you hand and will take you about an hour to make…the first time. After that, this quick and easy project will be zoomin’ fast!

We’ll provide a kit (included in the class price) that has most of what you need for the project. The kit includes:

  • The pattern
  • Enough walnut shells to fill two pincushions
  • Template plastic to trace the pieces
  • 12” of black  & 12” of white embroidery floss to tie the center

You’ll bring the following materials:

  • A mini charm pack *(2 ½ inch squares)


  • Assorted scraps* at least 2 ½ square

*Each dumpling takes 4 - 2 ½ inch squares

  • Matching cotton or poly sewing thread
  • One hand sewing needle with an eye large enough to accommodate embroidery floss
  • One small hand-sewing needle to stitch


If you’d like other than black or white embroidery thread to tie the center bring at least 12” of embroidery thread or yarn to tie the center

A button or a pom-pom to embellish the center

Your basic sewing kit, including:

A rotary cutter & ruler or dressmaking shears, pins, marking tools such as chalk or disappearing pens, hands sewing needles and a seam ripper.
