I hope you all had a Merry Christmas!
After all the busyness of the Christmas festivities, I wanted to do a nice and simple craft project so I made a couple of cute pincushions.
For some lovely pincushion ideas (and other craft projects), look at Debbie Shore on Youtube. For the cake (top), I followed the Teacup pincushion tutorial by Debbie. Instead of the teacup base, I made a cylinder shape with cardboard for the cup (base) and used fabric glue. I finished the cupcake with a big pearl on top and some pretty ribbon.
For the Petal pincushion, I followed this tutorial. I lined the top of the pincushion with wadding to make it firmer then filled it with toy stuffing. I used embroidery thread (double) to sew the petals and finished it with a button.
These are simple craft projects and make lovely gifts. Do you have an idea for a fun pincushion?
