Welcome to the April meeting of the Pincushion-of-the-Month Club! With Earth Day approaching and Easter on its way, I (literally) threw together the easiest pincushion projects yet.
You know you’ve got little treasures hanging out at your house, collecting dust, serving no purpose, and you really ought to get rid of them. Right? Wrong, don’t send them to the landfill—recycle them. I transformed a little basket I got as a gift, a beloved old Fiesta cup, and a tiny teacup that belonged to my mother-in-law into pincushions, and it only took me about 10 minutes.
Just gather the rest of your supplies, some scrap Easter-colored fabric (putting leftover fabric to good use is very “green”), fiberfill, and rubber bands.
I simply stuffed a bit of fiberfill in my fabric, wrapped the rubber band around the bottom of it (yes, I was being lazy…sew it if you want to), and stuffed it in my cup/basket. Done…
Now, I have cute, practical excuses for keeping my treasures, but they’d make really adorable Easter gifts, too—if I could bring myself to part with them.
