Make a Unique Pin Cushion

Click to enlarge the picture



Just a little project using a votive candle holder to make a pin cushion. I decided to added the piping at the last minute to fill the gaps and I'm glad I did, a little pipping goes a long way. After stitching the piping to the cushion I used heavy duty glue to adhere it.  Now I'll be looking for other interesting votive holders, I'd love to see what you come up with!

Print it out on 8" by 11" paper then cut in half and hole punch. I used specialty 2 sided scrapbook paper for a unique look. but any paper would work. If you have suggestions for future editions drop me a comment and share your projects

Customized Planner

Also I created a custom monthly planner in Indesign that I printed out on 2 sided speciallty scrap-book paper, with a 3-hole punch and a rotory cutter its one of a kind.

More Diaper Bags

McCalls B4560
these are a comission, one in pink and one in blue. I added strap adjusters per request, I had to special order 2" adjusters, they just don't sell those at the store. other than that I put the plastic canvas on the bottom instead of the back. I have made this pattered at least 8 times now and I love it more and more each time
