Joining your squares:
In order to join your granny squares you are going to sc them together. Of course you may use any other joining method you like, but I prefer this one since I like the effect it creates.
You have to measure he exact number of stitches used to join your granny squares to determnine the size of your back piece. Mine was 20 stitches, so I chained 23, and worked dcs in rows. Make sure you measure your back piece so that it fits promptly before sewing it to the front.
You have to sew the front and back piece together now. I used sc in order to create a border effect. You may use any method you like e.g. sl.st or even whipstitch them together. Before closing add some fiberfill. Upon doing that add a button to the center to give it a cushionlike effect! That's it! Enjoy your pincushion!:)
P.S. It can also be used as a sachet for your closet if you add a herb potpourri!
