pin cushion

I've been doing a lot of sewing lately and have been wanting a cute pin cusion. I saw this one on Make it and Love it and decided to make my own version! And love it :)
All I had to buy was the tin which was $2 at Michaels. I already had the fabric and batting left over from a quilt I made a few years ago.
I just wrapped the fabric around the batting to make a pouch, put some hot glue on the bottom of the tin, and stuffed the pouch inside. Easy, fast, and look how cute!

And I may or may not have bought new pins to match the fabric :) If it's going to be sitting out next to my sewing machine it might as well match, right?

You can never have too many pin cusions. I would love it if you would link it up to my weekly linky party Upcycled Awesome: http://tinyurl.com/upcycledawesome

It looks very cute! I might try to make one in a tea cup. Thanks for sharing!
