Pin Cushion Tutorial

You will need to recycle the top of any aerosol can. Make sure you rinse and dry it well. You will need a piece of felt; mine was 8.5 x 6 inches. That will depend on the size of your top. And a large ball of batting.

Place the large ball of batting in the center of the felt. Grab all 4 corners of the felt and meet in the center.

Using both hands then grab all the other edges and hold them in one hand.

Start by placing the open end of the felt into the top of the plastic cup. Play with it and you will have to work it a little so that it all fits. It will fit but you want the cushion to be big a bulky to safely fit your pins in.

Once it is done, place a pin or two of each of your own selection so that it is always visible and ready to use.
