#6: Simple Pin Cushion// Project ReStyle

before&after
For this week’s Project ReStyle, I transformed this random little brass pot I found in a cabinet a few weeks back into something that I really needed in my new studio- a pin cushion! This simple little project only took a few minutes to complete and you could pretty much use whatever little cup or pot you have on hand.

First I cleaned my pot with a little Brasso, just to make it shine a bit. Then I grabbed a handful of quilt batting. You can also use poly-fill, which would make for a softer cushion, but I was all out of that. Make a ball out of the stuffing of your choice.

Take a square piece of scrap fabric and wrap around stuffing ball. The size of fabric needed will depend on the size of container you use; mine was about 9″. Pull edges taut and secure with a rubber band.

Stuff into container. Stick in your straight pins and you’re done!
