I love to sew, among other things and one day I came across instructions on making bottle cap pincushions. These are miniature pincushions using a bottle cap as a base.
They can be made from many different materials, from quilt fabric, wool roving, and craft felt. They are adorable, decorative, collectible and functional. I've seen them plain or embellished to the hilt. They are especially useful when your working on specific projects that require only a few pins or needles. My specialty needles tend to get lost in my regular pincushion and these little guys are just the ticket to prevent that from happening.
Whenever I see an item I've never seen before, my first thought is "I can do that!" And I did. Here are a few of my newest line of pincushions.
Purple and White Bottle Cap Pincushion This one has embroidered flowers and is made from wool felt and wool roving
Fuchsia and Tan Bottle Cap Pincushion
Gray and Hot Pink Bottle Cap Pincushion with Embroidered Flowers this one has gray wool felt and hot pink wool roving with embroidered flowers.
Apple Basket Bottle Cap Pincushion was a total accident. When I was finished making it I realized that it looked like the old wooden bushel baskets used to store fruits and veggies.
