Heather Bailey Flutterby Pincushions Sewing Pattern, FREE SHIPPING

Fly away home to sew, sew, sew. With adorable Flutterby pincushions to keep you company, you’ll stitch up a swarm of beautiful things – four designs included. Make a simple butterfly or bee, or whip up a friendly little ladybug. Layered wings on all pincushions double as needle storage.

**Includes pattern & instructions for a bee, and a ladybug, and two butterfly pincushions.**

Every pattern includes comprehensive, professionally-illustrated instructions, along with additional construction tips, a pattern-specific glossary and a metric conversion chart for international customers.


NOTE: Butterfly’s upper wings can be made from fabric or from felt, however butterfly’s lower wings should be made from felt, for storing needles. For bee, both upper & lower wings must be made from the same material – fabric or felt.
