This is a handy little ring to wear when you're sewing and need a quick place for your needles. It is nearly free to make and would make a nice gift too.:)

Total Time: 30 minutes or less


  • bottle cap
  • 1/4" elastic
  • fabric
  • glue gun
  • stuffing
  • scissors
  • stencil
  • marker


  1. Using a stencil 4" across, trace a circle onto your fabric with a marker. I used part of a ribbon spool. Cut this out.
  2. Wad up a small amount of stuffing and put it in the center of your fabric.
  3. Twist the bottom tightly to close.
  4. Fill the bottom and sides of your bottle cap with a generous amount of hot glue. Push your twisted fabric bundle tightly into the cap.
  5. You will now trace another small circle onto your fabric using the cap as a stencil, cut this out.
  6. Cut a small length of elastic, fitted to your finger. Glue it to the bottom of your cap.
  7. Glue the smaller fabric circle to the bottom of your cap, over your elastic.
  8. All set!
  9. Ready to use!
  10. Enjoy:)
