10 Minute Finger Pin Cushion

These cute little pin cushions are incredibly handy and make perfect gifts hers day or any day!
Lid from plastic soda bottles.
Large Pom Pom (mine were at least 1 3/8 in diameter.)
3/8 Elastic strip about. 3 in length.
Hot Glue Gun
Extras: Ribbon, Ric Rac, jewels, buttons etc.
The pom pom must be large enough to squeeze into the lid and give a nice puffy, thick surface. The 1 size is too small. The one's shown measured about 1 3/8 which "might" be considered 1 1/2 size. (I purchased mine in a large bag of mixed sizes.) The lids come in a variety of colors or you could also spray paint them if desired.
Add hot glue to your lid.
Add your elastic.

    I use my in my sewing box for straight pins also add elastic long enough to fit around the base neck of sewing machine - position it in front so its handy to reach or velcro the bottom And stick it onto the base or end of machine . They make cute mini pin cushion for a guild retreat gift or quilting friends
