Sunny wrist pincushion

Please click here for resource.

This summer the pincushion challenge theme is "summer".


It was super easy to make. We drink a lot of gatorade here and I have been anxious to create a wrist cushion ever since I saw this great tutorial over at "my little mochi".

Supplies for my version:2_2

gatorade cap
orange and yellow felt
embroidery floss
elastic hair band (cut)
stuffing (poly-fil)
fabric glue
disappearing ink
Circle inking template

For the sunshine: I traced a 60 mm circle on orange felt (disappearing ink) and cut using pinking sheers.
For the face of the sun I used a 45mm circle and drew the face. Before I cut the circle, I went ahead and embroidered the face with floss. (I cut out an oval of orange felt for the nose.)

Then, I cut the embroidered circle and stitched it to the orange sunburst. I left about a 1/4 inch open to stuff the face with poly-fil before finishing off.


To make the hole in the gatorade cap, I took a nail and hammered it through. Very easy. ( I did it on the garage floor). Thread the elastic band through one hole, knot it and do the same with the other end of your band. (Be sure to test it and make sure the knot is fat enough where the band won't come back out of the hole.)


I added a little bit of fabric glue in the cap and added poly-fil for extra padding.


Finally, I added some fabric glue to the rim and poly-fil and placed "Sunny" on top. Use something heavy to keep in place while it's drying. I left it like this for about 30 minutes.
