I've been needing a pincushion for sewing and thought I could probably make it with supplies I already had. It was simple and quick, and it works wonderfully! I was pleased with the fact that I re-purposed the can into something else.
Total Time: About 20 minutes
- 1 small tin can, from tuna, chiles, etc.
- scrap paper
- scrap piece of material
- pillow stuffing or batting
- glue gun
- Take the wrapper off of your can. Measure the width of your can and cut a strip to cover the outside. Use glue, a glue stick, or modge podge to apply the paper. Let dry.
- Get a handful of pillow stuffing or batting. Make a ball out of it.
- Cut a strip from your fabric to tie the fabric around the batting.
- Wrap your fabric around the batting. Tie it tightly with your strip of fabric. Cut the excess fabric off.
- Put a bunch of hot glue on the inside of your can. Put the pincushion into the can, pushing it in as much as possible.
- Enjoy your new pincushion!
