  • How to make a pin cushions. Cupcake Pin Cushion - Step 1
    Step 1

    First of all you will need to make a template for the cup. You will need a circle <a href="/photos/crafty/cupcake/cupbottomtemplate.gif" target="new">[template]</a> for the bottom and a long rectangle strip <a href="/photos/crafty/cupcake/rectangletemplate.gif" target="new">[template]</a> that will fit around the circumference of the circle. Take a piece of felt in the colour that you would like the cup. Then draw out the shapes from the templates on to the felt.

    I sewed little beads to the cupcake to look like sprinkles. You can add eyes or whatever you want to decorate it. I choose not to add eyes because I would be using it as a pin cushion and it would make me feel cruel.
