Handmade Pincushion Gifts

>> Friday, November 12, 2010

Here's a fun holiday idea!  I always try to think of new handmade gifts for my family and friends (they can only get so many flasks and retro flowers you know) and this year some of the lucky sewing girls will be receiving these little cupcake pincushions.  They are a snap to make and look so sweet!  Take some small bowls (these are from Pier 1 Imports), leftover scrap fabric or felt, a handfull of poly-fil stuffing and pretty ribbons and make your own cute little pincushions for your friends and family!

You’ll need – a pair of fabulous clip on earrings, approx 5 inches of chain and jewelry pliers

Step 1- Open up one end of the chain and attach it to the back of the clip on earring

Repeat with the other side
