Homemade Tomato PinCushions
If you are like me, then you love crafts. If you craft, then you have a bunch of pins all over the place. This is the perfect piece to store pins.
In today’s world, pincushions play a very important role. It is a collectible that comes in many, many, many forms and colors.
You can make your pincushion with the color of your choice. You can play with the colors and make a purple tomato. They all look cute anyway.
You need a 11′ x 9.5′ felt sheet for the base and another 4′ x 4′ for the top.
You will also need a sewing needle and thread.
Using a template, mark the base on the felt and cut it.
Do the same with the top part form the template.
Sew a running stitch all around the perimeter. Place leftover fabric or felt in center of the base, and gather into a pouch. Stuff with some more, pull thread to cinch, and tack with stitches until it becomes a ball.
Sew or glue the top.
See how easy it is to make a pincushion.
My favorite is the yellow one. Oh yes, It is. Adorable!
You can use the template that I especially made for you, and you and you. What other forms of pincushions do you have or have seen?
