    Step 1

    Cut out a circle of your fabric. I like to use a ribbon spool for measurement but you can kinda just eyeball it depending on how plump you want your pin cushion.

    Gently pull your stitches to tighten the fabric around the stuffing. Make sure you push your fabric down while you pull so it all gets in there.

    Now you can either leave it as is or cover the bottle cap. I like to use ribbon but you can also use fabric or paint the bottle cap. Whatever your mind can up with really. The possibilities are endless.

    Sometimes I also like to attach ribbon and some velcro and make it a bracelet so my pin cushion is always handy.

Haha. I made one of these when I was like 8 or 9 and I just saw it the other day. (yes I still have it after like 12/13 years!) I was thinking it would be great to make a new one and do a tutorial, you saved me some effort! Mine has a hole drilled in the bottom with a small piece of elastic looped through it so it goes around your finger tho. =]
