Mini Pincushions

by Sharon Smith

To make a small gift pincushion using a napkin ring, after stitching a
small design on a circular piece of fabric (diameter will depend on
the size of your napkin ring and the ‘puff’ you make).

Now, take your embroidered circle and make a filled ‘puff’ using fiber
fill, then simply glue into the top of the napkin ring.

I use a small stone for weight if the ring is too light and glue a
piece of felt to the bottom to make it look pretty.

Not only are they quick, fun and adorable, these make cute gifts for
the sewers on you list.

    This is a great idea! I always like to have little gifts to give, and I will make some of these for that purpose. But first…I will make one for myself, for the times when I do handwork while watching T.V.

    I just started my in-home sewing business and have been working on decorating my sewing room. “one” of my motifs is strawberries and guess what? I have four ceramic strawberry designed napkin rings which will look great sitting on my notion shelf. This will also assist in selling my talents. – Thanks

    Great idea! I purchased a couple of rings over the weekend to try this – but where do you find the small designs that you used? DBS designs seem to all be to big.
