Fabulous cake pin cushion

This little pin cushion is almost as beautiful as it is easy to make. The minute I saw the video on DIY Dish I knew I had to make one.

I've embedded their video so you can see just how easy it is to make. To get beyond the initial chatter and right to the instructions you will have to fast forward the video to about 5:33.

For my little pin cushion I used both felt & fabric. The bottom layer is made with a scrumptious chocolate felt from Club Scrap's Academy kit. It's hard to tell from this picture but the felt has a flourished embossed pattern that is just divine!

For the top cake I used fabric on just the outside layer but felt on the inside. Now . . . what's a cake without a little sprinkle? To create this effect I used enameled straight pins. I then finished the top of the cake with a little flower made from the same pleated ribbon that adorns the bottom of the cake.

If you make one of these beauties be sure to send me a link to your blog or email me a photo. Until next time . . . thanks for stopping by
