Warning this is a tad lengthy, however I wanted to show you how this awesome piece came together!
A while back I got I posted about some thrifty finds I had. Well I finally got around to working w/ the small glass bowl with stem that I got for a whopping $1! I bought it w/ a plan since I had seen a lot of the cute pin cushions made this way.
Well if there is anything you may know about me in keeping up w/ my blog is that my bedroom is in black and white...I'm definitely a black/white kind of gal!
refurbished desk more) but in the end I just decided on black!
yo-yo) I did not tied a knot yet or pull the thread too tight b/c I need to fill it so I then set that aside
To fill my little fabric baggy I made:
I sewed the 2 circles together but left a hole, turned it inside out
Well I decided a little personalization would really help this cute little piece...but how to do it?? The best way would probably be paint but free hand painting would not cut it so I had to make a stencil and since the pin cushion was all put together the stencil would HAVE to be flexible but sturdy enough to where I would stay in the lines....Masking Tape it was....yes masking tape. I love masking tape!
When I pulled the stencil off this is what I got...IT WORKED!
