If you have been following me on Instagram, you’ll know I have gone a bit crazy doing some stitching. Well as I have been stitching, my needles have been getting everywhere, so I decided to make a little pin cushion to help out Mr Tomato. See he has a buddie now.
Want to make one? All you will need is a lid from an old jar and some scraps of material and some stuffing. Here’s a breakdown ……
Lid from an old jam jar
Scrap fabric cut in a circle shape to fit the lid
Bits of ribbon or ric rac, buttons – anything you have in your stash to decorate
- With the circle of fabric, do a running stitch all around and place the stuffing inside, then pull thread to close and sew in place.
- Put some glue in the lid and place the fabric in it and hold for a few minutes until it’s well stuck down.
- Now you can glue some ribbon or ric rac around the lip so you wont see this lip and embellish away.
- I did a small bit of backstitch on the fabric at the start, you could try something like this or just leave as is.
