One of my newer fabric projects, this pincushion, started from a simple gift of homemade shortcake. It came in mason jars that had fabric circles in between the flat metal seals and the ringed parts of the lid.
I turned one of the fabric circles into a pincushion by
1. going round the edge with my thread,
2. pulling it like a drawstring,
3. adding stuffing,
4. and sewing a small hemmed black circle to the bottom to finish it off.
I really love how the dot and dash pattern lets me be OCD with my pins and needles!
