Pin it!


I made a pincushion.  Sounds hilarious I know!  

Like I have nothing better to do on a Saturday?  No really, I don’t.  This weekend it’s just me and the kids.  And snow and cold.
But seriously, I do enjoy my creative time.  I took some advice from my Mom, and set up a creative workspace in our bonus room, which also happens to be our kids playroom.  So it’s a win-win for us.  I can create, and the kids can play, plus we get to enjoy each others company!  
So today, a pincushion it was.  I’m getting back into sewing again, and I have always needed a place to push my pins, so I thought I would make one.  Cute eh?
Taking pictures just isn’t the same without a cat in the way!

Upcycling is great!  This is one of my daughters old sweaters.  

I just cut about an 8 inch circle out of the sweater.
 And got some cotton stuffing from an old pillow.

Lovely little hands holding it all together.
I just tried to uniformly gather the material.

Got out my trusty sewing needle, and hand stitched the top.

Don’t worry about the mess it initially looks like, because you can cover it up!
I just cut out a flower from some leftover felt, and hand stitched it on with some embroidery thread.

Glued on a button, and all done!

Pin it!
