I’ve started another sewing project. Truth be told, I probably could have finished it this afternoon, but I was at that eager rushing point where I could easily begin to make mistakes so I decided to back off. Instead, I made myself a few pincushions. (The one I’ve been using is old and beginning to fall apart.) So here are my Flower Pot Pincushions.
This is how you can make your own:
1. Cut a circle of fabric a fair bit larger than the circumference of your pot.
2. Using a thread and needle, stitch a running stitch around the perimeter of the circle. You’ll notice that if you pull it tight it bunches, like a little sack of money. Leave it loose enough that you can stuff it with some stuffing, and then tighten and secure with a knot. This part doesn’t need to look pretty.
3. Use a glue gun to put glue around the inside edge of the pot. Quickly sit the cushion on/in the pot.
