Jump ahead in the video to the 5:35 mark, and see how to make a really cute, felt pin cushion!
The pin cushion looks like a miniature layer cake and (with adult supervision) is fun for kids to make and use!
It's quite easy! You just roll, narrow, pre-cut strips of felt to make the cake layers and then decorate with embellishments.
My kids loved making these in sewing class.
One word of caution: This project uses a hot glue gun.
A few lines and dots of hot glue are needed to hold the cake-shape and embellishments in place, so please be careful when you use hot glue. Grown-ups should operate the glue gun.
We used trims like rick-rack, ribbon, beads and pre-made flowers to decorate our cakes, but you can add any embellishments you like.
Cut 8 pieces measuring 2.5" x 12" from felt.
Cut 4 pieces measuring 1.5" x 12" from felt.
The video explains how to put them together.
So, pull out your trim basket and a hot glue gun (again only for you grown-ups to handle), and get set for some creative fun.
