Wide bottle cap pin cushion Tutorial

A simple Project to turn junk into some thing beautiful and useful.

The stuff you will need is
  • a wide neck bottle cap i.e.(a jar of jam) .
  • some filling material
  • a fabric circle
  • scissors
  • lace to cover the sides of the lid
  • a button, fabric rose or some thing else to embellish the cushion
  • transparent Adhesive
  • needle and thread
place the lid in the center of your fabric piece and draw a circle that is 3 inches wider then your lid .Cut this circle out.

Tie a knot at one end of your thread ,slightly fold the edges of your fabric circle towards the wrong side and sew along .

Now care fully pull the thread just like when we make a yoyo and a pouchy shape will be formed fill this pouch with some filling material ! i am using Polly fill here, now pull the thread tightly and sew close the opening thoroughly by taking random stitches .

dont worry about the untidy look at the bottom as this side will hide inside the lid .

Put some generous amount of adhesive in the base of the lid and on the sides as well and place the fabric ball in it,

softly press the ball in its place and if you are not in a hurry then leave it to settle down for 10 minutes .

Cover the sides of the bottle cap with some lace with the help of transparent adhesive.

cover the joint of the lace with some thing like a fabric flower or button or beads !your choice, this will not only hide the rough joint but also embelish the the whole thing ,i am hear using a silk flower made by sticking together 5 circles of diffrent sizes with singed edges with a candle flame.

Thats it your pin cushion is all done add your little helpfull buddies (the pins)to it and enjoy your creativity :) have a nice day
