Since I caught a good doze of creative bug earlier in the year, I've been trying to organise all the things I wanted to make and looking for new things to try. I'm starting to think that a glue gun might be a worthwhile investment!
I saw this idea in a UK magazine where they were priced at £48 [Overpriced]. Then I stumbled on it again recently and decided to have a go at making my own.
First you cut a circle larger than the lid, stuff it, stitch and draw closed enough to fit the lid. Glue the cushion to the lid around the edges, Then make a decorative border or use a pretty ribbon [haven't any] handstitch the seam, slip over and glue in place.
There you have a multi purpose Pincushion/storage jar, for beads, buttons etc...
This one has beads in it, you could do the same with a tin, I'm trying to decide the best way to store my sorted buttons.
