Felt Doughnut Pin Cushions

One of the things I needed to do to make my sewing/craft area more efficient was to make new pin cushions x 2 (1 for the sewing table, 1 for the cutting table). I wanted to make felt doughnuts ever since I saw it in many craft blogs on the web. The tutorials I found here for the template and here for the stitching technique. I didn’t add any beading for the sprinkles as the pin heads would make a the sprinkle effect themselves. 

Alas, I had to say goodbye to my old pincushion. This one was actually handed down to me from my Mum (she made it herself) – goodbye cushion, you served me well … 

… and hello doughnut pin cushions – welcome! 

Goodbye ...

... hello!
