FELT PINCUSHIONS


An online tutorial (here) started off the production of bottle cap pincushions - they are so cute and less than 2" wide across the base, although of course you could use larger bottlecaps. Linda made me the pink and blue one, which as you can see has gorgeous embroidery and French knots. I made the other two, but couldn't find my embroidery stitches book (it's here somewhere I KNOW it is ...) so sewed star beads on instead. They are great fun to make and are wonderful presents to give.

You know what's funny Rosie, I actually have the magazine with this tutorial in it from ages ago and have never tried it. I really should now that I have seen yours, and I just love the star beads, they are a perfect touch :)
