Pin Cushion (Crafter’s Companion Threaders) Fabric
Hi again everyone….
Ok, so here is the instructional on the Pin cushion that I talked about that is so fast and easy.
Gemini Check out on HSN September 29th
Crafter’s Companion Circle Nesting Dies Check out on HSN September 29th
Crafter’s Companion Home Grown, Cottontail, Polka Dot fabric Check out on HSN September 29th
Crafter’s Companion Construction Card Stock
Glass jar with screw off lids
Hot Glue and Glue Gun
|This is the Threaders Metal Die Set Nesting Circles, I used the biggest circle to cut the fabric.|
|Used the smallest for the Cardboard bottom.|
|Crafter’s Companion Construction Card stock.|
|This is the Polka Dot and Cotton Tail fabric that I used for the pin cushion itself.|
|The yellow fabric on the bottom is from the Home Grown Fat quarters sorry I did not get a better photo than this.|
|To start iron all your fabric. Take your biggest die in the set and send it in you Gemini, cut all at the same time, this machine will get the job done.|
|Hand sewing these are very easy. Thread a needle with sturdy 100-percent-cotton thread and knot the end.
Take small, evenly spaced running stitches near the top edge all the
way around the circle. Bigger stitches will allow the fabric to gather
|End your stitching just next to the starting point; don’t knot or cut
the thread. Gently pull the thread end to gather the edge until
it forms a gathered circle. The right side of the fabric will develop
soft pleats as you gather the edge.
|At the stuffing to the circle.|
|Add the circle card stock in the center of the yo-yo. Take your thread and pull until completely gathered. Take a small stitch to hold the
gathers in place, then knot your thread and cut off the end.
|Take the lid to the glass jar and add the hot glue all over the top, add the cushion. Take washi tap or ribbon and hot glue to the side of the lid.|
Remember to watch HSN Friday September 29th for the debut of Crafter’s Companion Threader Line. They will have the Gemini with a bundle, the fabric and the dies, so make sure you tune in.
As always, if you have any questions please let me know and Happy Crafting….
