I thought this would be a nice little gift along with some new pins and needles for my friend who had some seriously bent and dull pins. The button on the pin cushion is made of polymer clay and the little book has 4 felt pages inside for needles.
Thanks twin lakes for this idea. I made the brown set first and sewed the flowers on. I decided to use fabric glue on the purple set. That sure made it go faster plus my hand sewing skills aren't the neatest. I made the buttons out of polymer clay scraps. Since you can make the whole set out of one 9X12 piece of felt and some felt scraps for the flowers, I think it makes a cute and quick gift.
I LOVE this idea. I just got through making a blackboard and added eraser to my shopping list. Your homemade eraser is WAY cuter! Thanks for the tutorial. I knew that I'd have a use for the styrofoam in the garage. I can hardly wait to make a couple of them.
Silly judges. I LOVE your idea. I bought a bunch of X-large men's shirts at a bag sale last week. They're mostly Hawaiian prints. I was wondering what I was going to do with the pretty fabric. Now I know. I'm going to cut some of it up and use your idea and hang them on our chain link fence. Thank you! Thank you! Very clever and creative.
