(Not sure if this has been posted before or where it should go)
I saw this in a Japanese craft magazine that I just got (these magazines are full of amazing projects!) and decided to spend 10 minutes whipping a few up:


They are perfect for clipping on your WIP basket or tote bag, anywhere that you need to stick a few pins really.
All you need is:
  • clothespins (mine are a bit too long)
  • a small circle of fabric and a narrow strip of fabric
  • small wooden disks- I used slices of cork underneath 2 of the cushions and a mini wooden pot under the other
  • needle&thread
  • ribbon or trim
  • glue
  • polyfil stuffing
aren't they cute?

I am lucky enough to have a coworker that travels to Japan and that's how I got mine (I'm a lucky girl!). I saw a few on Ebay a while back and I read somewhere that you can pick them up at a larger airport. I imagine you could find them in a city that has a large Japanese community too.
Thanks everybody.
