Teeny Tiny Pincushion
Recycling, or upcycling, as I believe it is now known, has a perennial appeal for sewers and crafters. An accumulation of empty cotton reels was staring at me this morning, begging to be used, so I've turned a few of them into pincushions.
I've wrapped felt around them to hold needles and attached tiny sussex puffs, stuffed with cotton wool, to hold the pins. The finished article, pins and all, is less than three inches tall, so they are very portable. Good for sewing on the move.
Like all bloggers I enjoy sharing my ideas and am happy for readers to adapt them for their own needs, but please don't pinch them for your Etsy and Folksy shops!
