Look, I made a bottlecap pincushion - here it is, step by step...
I remember making one a few years ago, and it struck me, it would look cute with a patchwrk flower on the top.
And so I made a patchwork flower from ½inch hexies.
Stitched it to a circle of thin corduroy.
Glued another circle of corduroy to a orange juice bottle with my glue gun. Love my power tool :-). Folded the excess fabric into the centre of the cap.
Then - a running stitch around the perimeter of the first circle.
Drew the string and stuffed the 'bag' firmly with polyester fluff. Held the little bag of fluff tight to the bottle cap, as I stitched around it. And voila - a muffin :-)
Then I made a strap, 1 cm wide - and cut two snippets of velcro.
Placed the muffin in the middle of the strap, stitched it to the
strap. Measured the length of the strap around my wrist - and then
stitched the velcro to the ends of the straps - one on the inside of
the strap, the other on the outside.
I foldede the ends of the strap under the velcro.
And there it was - a patchworkmuffin - or, a bottlecap pincushion to go!
