Pin cushion tutorial

I trawled  the internet the other day because I needed a new pin cushion, the old one is a bit worn.

Would you believe that I came across a picture for a booby pincushion and a uterus one! No I am not going to show the link (I cant remember it) just Google uterus pin cushion, I bet its there.

An idea that did come up was for a handy ring pin cushion. Not only that but its an up cycled bottle top.

Here is how I made it

Punch 2 holes. I had a tool but a hot nail would do it. Be sure and hold it with pliers.

Put a bit of elastic through and knot it inside the top.

I cut out a3 inch circle of felt, gathered it with a running stitch, stuffed it with toy stuffing and tied it tightly.

I covered the top with ribbon, filled the top with hot glue and put the cake on the bottle top, decorated with a few more ribbons (cheeky CK ribbon)

A wooden bead and some coloured pins finish it off. This is a seriously handy pin cushion, its right where you want it while crocheting and so cute to wear. If you have a go let me see!!

  1. That is a great idea! I don't really like the idea of a uterus pincushion, it seems so wrong sticking pins in one!

  2. Very clever! Ok the uterus pin cushion sounds gross, so of course I had to google it. You'll never believe who's blog came up first in the search! Cracked me up....

  9. Hey there! I understand this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does managing a well-established blog like yours require a massive amount
    work? I am completely new to blogging but I do write in my diary everyday.
    I'd like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou! http://appleincupdates.blogspot.ca/2012/10/ipod-touch-5th-generation.html, http://www.mediadaily.co.kr/news/articleView.html?idxno=5665

  42. Very useful details, I have actually constantly preferred laser printers because they are much less pricey to use,
    as soon as you make the preliminary investment. Toner cartrages are a lot more expensive yet last longer than most individuals lots of inkjet cartrages and are
    much less untidy to use. You can specify your laser printer to
    print in grayscale and use less of the shade toner, I only utilize shade when publishing
    pictures.

  48. Essentially, "light" indicates heavily-refined olive oil, removing considerably of its flavour and perhaps damaging
    the very good stuff inside. Sometimes it's olive oil that is been adulterated with other, lesser oils such as canola.
