Pin Cushions

1 Material
It's a waste to discard empty glass containers. I've repurposed them with scrap fabric n cushion insert into pin cushions. Comes in handy for scissors n reel of thread which won't roll away when the thread is been pulled. Takes about an hour to complete one.
First bind fabric over the mouth with thread. Pull down and sew the sides. Fill in with cushion insert to add bulk to the glass container. Put in the cap at the bottom and tie the fabric with thread. Pull up the fabric till the mouth of glass container n sew in neatly.
Have also recycled another empty glass container using a stretchable material - hand glove.
