Made this some time ago but kept adding stuff to it and now it looks pretty cute!

It's really easy to make too. I used scraps and a bottle cap from any ol' pet bottle.

I have one of these (it's not nearly so pretty, btw) but it has two holes in the base and elastic strung through it so I can wear it like a ring when I'm frantically sewing.

How did you get the holes there?

I wanted to make one like yours but couldn't figure out how to put the holes in the bottle cap.

I bet you could get a nail, and hammer a nail into it for the holes....

I have one of those, too!  I think it looked like whoever made it melted the hole there; I imagine you could probably hold a nail with a pair of pliers, heat it for a few seconds over a candle, and press it through the cap pretty easily.

that would be easy, and wouldn't bend the cap, duh! I love power tools.

sorry to bring up an old thread, but it looks cool! I was wondering if in the frenzy of sewing, any of you who use one of these have ever pinned yourself instead of the ring? ;p
