Happy Tool Time!! Today is another pincushion idea...a ring pincushion!!
We all love pincushions and we all use them in different places...by our sewing machine, on the cutting table, on the ironing board, by our favorite chair when we do a little hand sewing or even in the car.
This is the best pincushion, because we'll never lose it...it's on our finger!!
The tools for this project are easy.
- a ring form. I bought mine at Hobby Lobby for $1.99
- scrap fabric
- hot glue gun or another adhesive
This is the ring form.
The top of this ring looks like a little cake pan. It has an edge. There are other ring forms that have a flat platform...that will work too.
This type of ring would be for a large gem stone or bead, but not for us!!
Scrap fabric and circle to trace.
This square of fabric is 2 1/2 inches, just as a guide to the size of my circle.
To gather the edge of the circle, you can hand sew a running stitch around the outer edge or I just sewed a loose stitch around the edge.
It's the largest stitch on your machine.
To gather, just pull either the 2 top threads or the 2 bottom threads.
Fill with fiber fill and pull threads. I also stitched it closed a little.
Fill in the ring bottom with hot glue and quickly add the cushion.
The best kind of ring for me.
You can use it on any finger.
This ring will be perfect for you, but also great as a gift for a sewing friend.
