It doesn't look as great as the ones I've seen online but it's cute enough for me and has plenty of room for pins. Here's what I did.
|I love when I find something I can make that I have the materials for. A glue gun, an empty container, scissors, ribbon, scrap fabric, needle & thread and fiber stuffing.|
|You need to cut your fabric in to 3 pieces, one to cover the bottom, one to cover the sides, and the larger circle is the top of the pin cushion. I ended up cutting that one smaller, it was way too big for my container.|
|I opted to use felt for the bottom, so I cut a circle to size.|
|Using your glue gun, glue the long strip of fabric flush with the bottom of your container, all the way around. Sparingly or you'll get glumpy globby bumps under your fabric.|
|Fold the extra inside and glue that in there.|
|Glue the bottom on.|
|This is how it looks so far.|
|Sew around the edges of the large circle but leave the thread intact.|
|After filling it with fiber stuffing, (donated generously by an old teddy bear), pull your thread tight.|
|Sloppily close it up with a few stitches and tie it off.|
Every one of you should make this now. All the materials are probably in your house. You can make it bigger or smaller. Every hijabi uses pins. Go watch the video. Go. Make it.
*I just made these 2 for friends, it's even easier the second time :)
