From the Blogger: "I am so in love with these pincushions! They are very simple - I like to cut out a bunch of the circles and strips at one time and put them together, and then do the embroidery part while watching Lil’ Miss play in the park. They are really a lot of fun. And coordinating the embroidery to the fabric is fun too. Of course, it's lovely to recycle the lid, and you can also do this with a 2 liter bottle - or really any size bottle cap. Just measure the top part out accordingly- the diameter of the circle should be about 3 times the diameter of the bottle cap. For 2 liter bottles, you can also use wool felt for the top part too."

I find pincushions very enchanting. It must be for their whimsical appearance. This one is a great recycle project as it uses a mayonnaise jar lid, or really any size lid and some wool felt. There is an easy to follow tutorial that explains the process. Great gift idea too.
