Kerry is like me and can always use pincushions so I made her this cute wrist pincushion she can wear while doing light jobs like hemming.
Here is how I made it.
I took the lid from a drink bottle a drilled a couple holes in it.
Then I tied some elastic band through the holes and tied 2 knots. One at the end and one closer in to tighten it up. I pulled them into the lid and glued them down.
On to the actual pincushion. I cut a circle of fabric and stuffed it and sewed it up. Once that was done, I hot glued the ball of stuffing down into the lid, covering the elastic up.
I ended up using 3 pieces of trim because the lid was wide. I used baby piping to cover the bottom that meets your skin. On top of that, I use a piece of single ply bias tape. The top piece is just ric rac. (I have no idea why I didn't take a photo of that process...oops.)
I think it turned out cute for a 20 minute project and would be super easy to do a more elaborate pincushion in the same way
I'm sure you could use a thin pony tail holder instead of the elastic but I like how stretchy the elastic is, especially when making something as a gift.
