pincushions-a new twist

so I must have this small - teensy weency obsession with pin cushions lately...
cuz I made some more.
aren't they sweet? I know this has been done before - it's not like I discovered this on my own
but it was the first time I tried it and with NO tutorial. So I thought I would make one up for you.
But please be aware that this by no means is the RIGHT way or the BEST way to make this...
it is JUST MY way.

so you'll need a small 1.00 frame from Michaels,  

some fabric, some stuffing and a glue gun.
Fist thing I did was cut the frame away from the frame backing...then I glued
on some from around the chipboard frame then I glued around it a bit more until
I formed a pocket and stuft that pocket with stuffing.

 
then finished the sluing around the back then because the frame NO longer fit properly
I glued it in place.


see how sweet - but DONT go looking at the back of the frame - gotta cover that up.

anyway, its a cute idea to add this with some fun sewing supplies and make a great gift for a gal pal.

I am linking this up to the following parties:


 I'm off to spend the weekend with my hubbs in sunny Santa Barbara.
have a great weekend -
xo

So cute, Tina! I had seen this before, too, but you make an easy tutorial. And, I just happen to have a few of those Michael's dollar bin frames! : ) Thanks for sharing!

Love this project! I'll bet you could find these little frames at yard sales, too - sometimes I find the best craft supplies that way! I'll bet it would even look cute hanging on the wall, just a little hook on the back so it can be a decoration when it's not in use.

Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using?

I'm going to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a tough time

making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is

because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for
something completely

unique. P.S My apologies for getting
off-topic but I had to ask!

Currently it looks like

Wordpress is the top blogging platform available right now.
(from what I've read) Is that

what you are using on your blog?
