Remember this vintage spool~
and this~ the famous spool pin cushion with the Tim Holtz (alcohol ink stained) pins.
This pin cushion has 6,500 page views on my blog and has been pinned over 500 times. I have been asked for the use of the picture, to sell it, for a tutorial and "did I make it". Here is the scoop~
I bought it 4 years ago in Branson, Missouri at a craft/antique mall. I had no idea it would be such a hit and because of that I decided to make one with you~ so get a spool, burlap, hot glue gun, pillow stuffing, measuring tape trim, buttons, and pins:):)
I cut a 5" circle out of some burlap material ( bought at craft store)~
This is showing how I started the process of stuffing the top of the spool. I tagged it with hot glue in several spots and then added the stuffing. I kept tagging with hot glue and adding stuffing.
It should look like this after repeating the process.
After that is done and it is all glued down~I went around it with the scissors and cut off the hang over~ It is now ready to decorate and add the measuring tape trim. Just use what you have~old trim or lace would look pretty too.
and this is what I came up with!!! I did not buy anything special, just used what I had in my stash:):)
Let me know what you think:)
See ya soon~
