Felt Voodoo Doll Pincushion


This creepy cute voodoo doll pincushion is a simple and spooky addition to your sewing basket. Able to hold all the pins you can possibly imagine yet always there with a goofy grin, he’s the ultimate frienemy! I wanted to give mine a bit of a vintage aged feel so I went with a wool blend chai felt, a milky grey beige tone but you can make this felt pincushion in any color of the rainbow. The same applies to buttons, any size or shape will do. This project is truly great for allowing you to use whatever you have on hand and is an easy project for even beginning sewers.

You will need:

9″ x 12″ sheet felt I used Chai 

Scrap of felt for heart I used Pomegranate

Buttons one larger than the other, any size or style will work

Black embroidery thread




Two voodoo doll bodies from chai felt and one heart shape from scrap

Sew buttons onto front of one voodoo body side.

Using one full strand of embroidery thread stitch mouth shape and stitch over as shown.

Stitch down heart in an X shape.

Place the two pieces together so that they match up.

Using one full strand of embroidery thread overcast stitch around the outside, stuffing as you go. Enjoy your new friend…or enemy!

Happy Crafting!
