I'm very excited about these little pinkeeps! I don't consider myself to be very crafty but I can usually follow a detailed tutorial like Olga's HERE. I found her pin cushions by searching through blogs found on blogs....found on blogs. Do you ever do that? I thought they were the cutest little things and the size can vary depending on the size of the jar lid you choose to use. Mine are different in size and I filled them with crushed walnut shells instead of poly-fill. I like the weight it gives to them.
Well here they are.............
The hardest part was gathering the bottom up over the lid but it wasn't so bad. I'm not used to working with a sharp needle so my fingers are a bit sore today. I ran the eye-end of the needle through my finger! OUCH! I had a thimble close by but I just can't seem to operate with that thing on my finger. I suppose as with anything, if I used it more often I would be OK with it.
A big THANK YOU to Masterchief who helped me stuff the little things. I spooned the crushed shells in and he packed them down in there so I would have solid pinkeeps.
Well it's time for a Sunday afternoon nap.
Thanks for stopping by today.
