I don't know about you, but I love using bits of thread and twine on my layouts, but I am forever losing my needles. My desk is such a mess and those tapestry needles are just so tiny.
Inspired by all the fabulous pin cushions I have seen on many blogs, I set out to create my own.
I started with some canvas fabric I picked up at the fabric store, a few of my favorite glimmer mists, my sewing machine, and some beautiful flowers and trims.
I cut the fabric into a heart shape with my sizzix, but any shape would do. You could even hand cut if you so desired.
I layered my favorite glimmer mists onto the hearts and waited for them to dry.
Then I used a bit of my Helmar 450 to adhere a few odds and ends I had lying on my desk. (figures I can find those. hee hee)
Now my needles have a new, larger home and hopefully be easier to find.
