I am taking part in Kate's pin cushion swap at Foxs Lane. I've made a fair few pin cushions in my time but I fancied something ...different...pretty...small,
so I followed a long bloggy trail and happened across the Craft Stylish website and I found these...
Aren't they lovely !!??
This is where you can find all the instuctions, you only need a bottle top and a bit of felt.

These are my own creations, one from a milk bottle top and one from a water bottle.
I enjoyed them so much I have to restrain myself from taking the lids off things that aren't even empty!
I nearly ruined one by running out of green thread before it was finished,because I used a little scrappy bit I had left over. Why do I do that ? I have heaps of embroidery silk in skeins, why do I get so thrifty with bits of cotton and yet seriously consider buying a new handbag for £40 from Cath Kidston...
Have a lovely creative weekend! Louise x
