I love sewing, but then I had trouble putting my pins into places (I guess that's what pincushion is for). So I made this crochet pincushion. It's very cheap.
You only have to be able to crochet and little bit sewing.
Happy crocheting and sewing everyone ^_^
Make one mini crochet doily using beige cotton yarn.
Cut cotton cloths based on the shape of the doily, mine is octagon.
Make little stitches around the doily to secure its place on the cloth
Make sandwich of cloth-doily-cloth. (For the cloths, its Right Side Together)
Sew the Wrong Side of the cloths around. Make a little opening for flaping the Right Side of cloths inside out.
Right now your pincushion will look like a little pouch. Fill in the "pouch" with polyester or scramble cloths, or other soft thing to make it bulky.
Sew in the opening of the pincushion by hand.
Finish. Grab your camera, take good pictures ^_^ and send me your version.
