This tiny 10 minute pin cushion is a huge help for anyone who sews. Made using the lid from a plastic bottle you can make it any color or style you want! Great for keeping pins handy and putting pins back as you pull them out. Give them as gifts with a matching set of pins.
Pin Cushion Supplies
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.
