Stick a Pin in Me

I made a pin cushion last night, in an attempt to organize all of my pins and needles in one place.  I got the instructions here.  We’re gonna try this one in as few words as possible, cause these pictures speak mostly for themselves.

Find some felt and cotton fabric – preferably some you just have lying around – also preferably some that matches.

Fabric_Choices

Use whatever you’ve got to trace a 5″ circle on both pieces of fabric (a jar, a vase, an old Country Crock bucket … )

Trace_Circle

Cut ’em out, y’all!

Circles_Cut

Pin ’em up and sew ’em up.  Don’t forget to leave a reverse-y hole.

Circles_Pinned

Sewing

Circles_Sewn
Flip it and reverse it.

Circles_Reversed

Stuff it like there ain’t no tomorrow.  (Seriously, stuff and stuff and then stuff some more!)

Stuffed
Stick a pin in it.  You need a long pin and some strong embroidery floss.  Serious stuff here, people.

Start_Embroidery

Loop that thread around and around and sew a button on both sides.

Marvel at the cuteness and tell your friends if they ask very nicely, you might make them one too!
