Recycling month project: Tiny pincushion tutorial

here's another project to create while recycling. I found this great idea on How about orange.
So take out all your scraps and start creating.
You'll need:
• A bottle cap from a 2-liter pop bottle, or something with a larger diameter if you like, depending on what size cushion you want. It should be about 1/2" to 3/4" deep.
• Pretty fabric
• Coordinating felt
• Coordinating ribbon that's wide enough to hide the sides of your cap
• Stuffing, batting or cotton balls (I stole some stuffing out of a pillow on my couch)
• Needle and thread
• Scissors
• Glue (I used craft glue and a hot glue gun.)
1. Cut a felt circle the same diameter as your cap and glue it on (I used gel craft glue).
2. Cut your pretty fabric into a circle. For the 2-liter bottle cap size, make a circle that's about 3 1/2" in diameter. Add a little more for a bigger cap. It's not too fussy.
3. Stitch in and out around the circle to gather it, making a bowl shape.
4. Put as much stuffing into it as you can possibly fit, and tie off your thread. If some stuffing sticks out, no problem.
5. Put some hot glue around the inside edges of your cap and nestle your little stuffed pillow into it, smooshing it down tightly.
6. Glue decorative ribbon around the cap to hide the ugly sides. Done.

My Etsy's Coups de Cœur: Petunias

I've finally received my parcel from Petunias' on Etsy. I'm so happy with it. If you have a change go and have a look at her shop, I'm sure you'll find something you like.
The first buy was an owl coin purse for my Grandma as she collects them ( she thinks the owls bring good luck), the others (ICKY Bags) are presents but of course one is for me.

I couldn't resist not to put them on my blog.
Just be aware, if you live in Europe,that custom tax for importing them from America is very high! Anyway they are well worth it!
