making dinner, or doing laundry I like to squeeze the most
out of the minutes that I have on hand. What does this have
to do with pin cushions? Let me tell you. I have this uncanny
way of leaving my pin cushion sitting in the wrong spot. If
I'm cutting out fabric I always have to run over to my sewing
table to grab my pins...and then I'll start sewing and removing
pins and guess what? My pin cushion is on my cutting table.
Good grief lady! What do I have to do? Strap it to my bod?!
I know this really isn't an original idea. You can buy them at craft
stores for pennies. But what good is cute fabric if you don't cover
everything with it?
What you'll need for this project:
* a 5x5" scrap of fabric
* 1 1-1/2" covered button (just the top piece...save the bottom for another project)
* a length of 1" elastic (to fit comfortably around your pretty little wrist)
* a fist full of stuffing
* hot glue
* needle and thread
