FREE Dutch windmill pincushion PDF sewing pattern with links to #embroidery #tutorials

I just love my little Dutch windmill pincushion! I use it all the time, so you’ve probably seen it in some of my videos.

Until now, it was only available as a JPG image pattern, but today I’m converting it to the PDF format. Here you go!

This week’s free pattern is also available in my Teachers Pay Teachers store, with lesson plans for teaching “How to Make a Pincushion” for home economics and sewing class teachers. It offers PDF patterns for a plush Minecraft “pincushion” or toy, along with pincushion patterns for my dragon pincushion and this windmill project. All of these patterns can be printed, along with the lesson plans and student instructions, plus links to the tutorial videos, with the purchase of a 16 page PDF document for $2.99 right here.

I don’t advise this project for the absolute beginner; however, if you’re intermediate to advanced at sewing and would like to learn to embroider, this project makes a fantastic sampler (a project for practicing embroidery stitches).

Here are all the embroidery tutorials you’ll need to complete the project:

My patterns and tutorials are available through “Creative Commons Attribution.” This means that I created my patterns (and therefore I own rights to them), but I’m willing to share them with everyone who will tell people about my website.
