Oh, the delights of Christmas decorating!
Even your sewing/craft room needs a little Christmas love
and this pin cushion will brighten up your creative space.
Or it could be used to brighten up a friend's day
by giving it as a gift :)
Here is how I made this pretty pin cushion. . .
Christmas-y mug (smaller is better)
sewing needle and thread
hot glue gun and glue
Cut out a circle that is fairly larger than the mug.
Thread your needle and sew a running stitch along the edge of the fabric circle.
Fill the circle with batting and pull the thread tight; knot.
Hot glue a piece of felt over the opening.
Hot glue the lace to the inside of the mug.
Tuck your cushion into the mug-
it should be snug enough to fit inside without being glued down.
On the top of the cushion I added a pearl flower.
And on the front of the mug I glued on some pretty snowflakes.
Stay warm and cozy, beautiful friends, and have fun creating.
Love and blessings to you!
