My New Pincushion

Look at what I made for myself! I bought a couple of these ring notions at a local bead shop recently. How cool! I've wanted to make a finger pincushion for a while now because I use teeny, tiny little applique pins when I hand applique.  I just couldn't find these ring bases until now.

Then I dove into my roving stash and made a felt ball. For those of you who have never played with roving, run out and buy some! It's addictive. I sewed on some cute little seed beads and hot glued the felted ball onto the ring base. Look at my pretty new pincushion! 

I love my new pincushion. Hmm, could be an easy holiday gift to make for my sewing friends. Shhh, don't tell them, ok?  xo, L
