When Arrow Sewing Cabinets announced a pin cushion blog hop, I had to jump on. Want to follow the hop from the beginning? Jump on to their site for all the details.
Time spent sewing truly is my happy hour, so it is only fitting that I have a chocolate martini pincushion. You could change the color and make it just about any drink you like. Or if martinis aren't your thing, you can change it to look like a super yummy dessert.
What do you need?
*sheet of chocolate brown felt
*poly fill stuffing
*sheet of white felt
*Stickles glitter glue
How long do you need?
Less than an hour
What do you do?
Cut a circle out of the brown felt a few inches larger than the diameter of martini glass.
Squish the felt round into the glass until you form a cone and only have a single large fold.
Take the cone out and hand sew the fold crease.Here it is stitched up on the crease.
Then you will remove the excess by cutting off the fold.
Add hot glue all around the inside on the top of the glass and gently place the brown cone back in. (Don't worry about the mess of the hot glue showing, that will be covered up later.)
Stuff the glass full of the poly-fill. You want it to be pretty dense.
Move the glass upside down on the white felt and draw a circle around it with about 1" larger diameter. You will want it to have an irregular border. This is supposed to look like a yummy creme top to the martini.
Cut out the white felt. Add a line of hot glue on the outside of the glass on the top of the rim and fold down the white felt. Once it is dry, add a line of Stickles glue glitter along the border.
Doesn't it look delicious? My pins go in like butter! I am really loving this cushion. These would be adorable as gifts for the new seamstress.
I hope you have enjoyed the blog hop! This is your last stop - I hope it was a sweet one. Hop on back to Arrow for more details on their giveaways.
