Ok. Now to begin. I LOVE making these pin cushions. First they are SUPER EASY! and second they really take like 15 minutes to whip up. So have some fun and get your imaginations going with this. There is for sure a ton of ideas that you can come up with....so show us when you finish. will ya?
*First find some doilies. Either make some by hand, or buy them at a thrift store, garage sale, or anywhere else you can find them cheap. The doilies used here are around 4" diameter. * Jute string, or even Hemp string works great. It is a little thicker, more vintagey. * A Large needle for pulling that thread and going through that thickness. * Crushed Walnut shells. I found mine in a pet store by the lizard section. They use this for bedding in the cages. We use it for pin cushions. * Scraps that are at least 6" wide by 6" or as large as you need it to be. * A lid, something round, plate, bowl or whatever that is 6" in diameter.
