While browsing a blogring of quilting related sites, I happened upon a blog that showed pincushions made from soda bottlecaps. There were several different styles, and they were all very whimsical. I was so intrigued that I had to give them a try. I was pleased to discover how easy and quick they are to make, and I love that they also are very inexpensive to make. I have made six so far, and think it is likely I will make more as gifts for my quilting friends.
I have a collection of handmade pincushions, but these are so tiny. As a point of reference, the white eyes on the center ladybug are actually the heads of pins. They are by far the smallest pincushions I have.
