Pin pot into Cupcake Pincushion ^_^

I was tired of the plain pin pot I had with not much area for sticking pins on it's lid. Whilst I was surfing the web for ideas for uses for fabric scraps, I fell in love with the felted cupcakes by Betz White.

Tried making a version of it with normal craft felt and ended up with the mini cupcake pincushion (pictured left on photo 4). Unfortunately I do not own any 100% wool sweaters or could get my hands on any. (Or have the patience to felt the sweaters if I had any) So I found myself a substitute fabric - Fleece, for the main body of the cake.
