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
- glue gun
- Using a stencil 4" across, trace a circle onto your fabric with a marker. I used part of a ribbon spool. Cut this out.
- Wad up a small amount of stuffing and put it in the center of your fabric.
- Twist the bottom tightly to close.
- 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.
- You will now trace another small circle onto your fabric using the cap as a stencil, cut this out.
- Cut a small length of elastic, fitted to your finger. Glue it to the bottom of your cap.
- Glue the smaller fabric circle to the bottom of your cap, over your elastic.
- All set!
- Ready to use!
This neat little ring is ideal for sewers who want those pins and/or needles close by at all times.
Approximate Time: 30 minutes
- bottle cap
- small of piece fabric
- glue - Tacky works well
- stretchy cord
Make two small holes in the top of the cap about 1/2 inch apart.
Put stretchy cord through and adjust for your finger size by doing this on a magic marker or something that is the size of your finger.
Tie a few knots in the cord.
A 3 inch circle is cut from your fabric, then sewn along the edges, slip in some fiberfill, sew closed, and it is ready to be glued inside the cap.
