I've been redoing my craft room, trying to make it more functional as well as something I will love looking at, considering I'm at my desk a lot. I came up with these hanging pincushions because I knew I needed more on the wall and less on my desk. Also I knew I would need something for pins and needles because I use them a lot at random times. So this is what I came up with!
First I took three canning rings we had around the house.
Spray painted it black.
Using cardboard I traced (and cut out) a circle that fit perfectly in the ring. This will be the back so you'll want it to be a snug fit.
Gather supplies. You'll need your ring, cardboard backing, a piece of scrap fabric, and a bit of batting.
I put the ring upside down with the back facing toward me. On top of that I put my piece of fabric. It should be aprox 6x6 inches. I just estimated. The batting was about 5.5x5.5
I then began to gather the batting and the fabric in a circular motion.
Keep gathering until all sides are gathered and it fits perfectly in the ring.
Take thread and needle to secure the fabric.
Don't worry, it's doesn't have to look pretty, it will be covered. Just make sure it's sewn enough so it won't come undone.
Put your cardboard backing in. I secured it with some hot glue, so it wouldn't come out.
Take a 3" piece of ribbon and attached it to the back with hot glue.
Now just hang them up! Happy crafting!
