Note: The pom pom must be large enough to squeeze into the lid and give a nice puffy, thick surface. The 1″ size is too small. The one’s shown measured about 1 3/8″ which “might” be considered 1 1/2″ size. (I purchased mine  in a large bag of mixed sizes.) The  lids come in a variety of colors or you could also spray paint them if desired. The ones shown were kept as is.

    Great idea…and I just thought of this…for those who don’t want to wear it on your finger…glue a magnet on the bottom and pop it on your sewing machine…or make one of each!

    These are absolutely precious! While I do think that 3″ is a bit too long, the whole idea and the look of these little guys makes a person smile.
    Thanks for sharing!

    I like your idea of the finger pin cushion. I have made those in the past but I did mine with material and stuffing or cotton balls.
    What I did was measured what length of elastic I needed to go around the finger then I glued the ends of elastic to the inside the cap. I then took a small piece of material cut it in a small square just big enough to stuff it so that it will be tight. I put small amount of hot glue around the stuffing or cotton balls (1-2) folded up the material one side @ a time then I put glue to finish sealing it up. I then put hot glue around inside the cap and put bottom side down in the cap then pushed remaining loose ends of material inside the cap. I made sm, med and lg ones and they sold like hot cakes I almost couldn’t keep up. LOL
    I think I got $1.00 early and depending where I was I got $1.25-$1.50 for them. It may sound like more work but it really isn’t. Just thought I would share with you all.
    P.S. I liked using cotton balls better but depending on the size of your capof how many to use.
    Let me know if you should try it so I will know if you liked that way.
