I actually managed to make 8 of these this morning. Was rushing them out as gifts for my ex-classmates at fashion design school. Luckily they involved minimal sewing and lots of glueing. Not many other people would really need pincushions, I suppose.
The bottlecaps were collected over the weekend - I kept badgering Kisu to buy bottles of drinks from the supermarket - of course I dictated what he could buy because I needed only specific coloured caps! My dear kind hubby obliged...and the rest were contributed by Karen & Jimmy. I even asked the bartender at MAAD if I could have caps left over from his empty mixer bottles. Unfortunately at the end of the day, he told me he had none. Guess that tells you how many people drank at MAAD.
The "i sew" badges are customised, and I got them from Corinne of Not Too Pink on Etsy. They're also meant as gifts. I love the whimsical drawing of the little sewing machine, and the pink & green combo!
