I turned a ice cream glass upside down and glued a glass plate to the top looked like a mini cake plate, then find a cheese board that has a glass dome, perfect! Posted: 11:12 am on February 28th

Her blog is http://crazymomquilts.blogspot.com, and she made a tutorial once of her own style of pincushion - http://crazymomquilts.blogspot.com/2008/09/pin-cushion.html.

Well done! I love your creativity.

CreepinJen writes: Your pin cushion cupcakes are so cute. Lately it's been too cold to do anything with sweaters but wear them, but this would be a great winter project because the colors used are so spring-like. Great project and very inspiring! Thanks for sharing.

GrandBear writes: I can follow it until I get to "put the sleeve over it"? Do I roll two different colors of wool for center? and did you mean to pull the "cuff" over it?? I really would like to make some, thanks. When you say sleeve..do you mean the cuff of the sleeve? I see ribbing like a cuff. Posted: 6:34 pm on February 20th
lovejunk writes: Thanks everyone!
what you have to do is find some old sweater made of wool then wash them to felt then you can cut them and they wont fall apart you use the sleaves as the paper part you cut two rectangles about 5x10 fold in half long wise if the sweater is to thick you might want a thinner sweater roll the two pieces together and pin then sew together put the sleave over it cut a bottom then sew on add the pins and anything else you want to decorate them with have fun!!!
