Rolled felt pincushions - quick and easy, and oh so useful!

I found yet another tutorial over at Polka Dot Pineapple that I had to try!  This one happened to use two materials that I have an excessive amount of - bottle caps and felt.  Go over and check out her rolled felt pincushions, because I am really enjoying mine. As you may recall, I have tons of bottlecaps that I just keep saving, and I also have a couple of huge pieces of red felt left over from a poodle skirt, so when I saw this tutorial I knew this would be a great use for them! Mine aren't nearly as cute as Lettie's, but they are totally functional - I've got one by the sewing machine, and one in my "random box" which is full of supplies that get carried around the house from time to time.  Love it!

Cute! Great find, I hadn't seen that website before, I'll have to go scroll around it. :)

And thanks for your sweet comments on my lamp, I'm sure it will turn out great for you! See you!

Hiya, Please can you send me your snail mail address (via email) so I can send you some Aussie beer bottle tops to make some pincushions with? Funny thing is, just today I spied a few bottle tops and thought to myself, I should scoot around some blogs and see if I can find anyone that might have a use for them....and voila....I found them in use on your blog! Hugs Naomi
