I found a tutorial on Flickr that makes bottle caps and felt into very cute pincushions. I decorated mine with a little bit of embroidery. Here is the first one that I tried . . . it is super simple since I didnt like how it came together.



The second one was a bit more intricate, with vines and flowers.



Let me know what you think!

I've been wanting to make one of these... how easy would you say it was to make?  They both are cute, dig the color of the second one a lot, the flowers are done so nicely.

Human rights are for EVERYONE.  Did you know that Aung San Suu Kyi had been released from house arrest in Burma? Many other prisoners of conscience are still being detained.  Please research this topic... Amnesty International needs your help.

They were very easy to do. I had some difficulties with the first one because I just cut the strip for the side without a pattern and it ended up crooked. Also, since I used contrasting thread, it was really obvious when I made a mistake. The brown one worked far better, stitching with the same color thread and then decorating.

Another tip: For the gathering of the top bit, make sure you use really strong thread, I broke the thread THREE times on the first one and twice on the second. Very frustrating.

Im hoping to do one a night for a month, so Ill have little gifts to give away on my blog and to friends.

really nice !! Great job !! love the one with the flowers !

I also wanted to make a tiny pincushion so I made a bottlecap one but then I wanted to make a tinier one so  I used a plastic lid from a milk container instead... :-)
