Mini-Snippets: Pincushion Ring

Sometimes I just need a tiny place to stick some pins.


1-inch 2-hole button
1/2-inch (1.5cm) felted wool ball (source)
(Make your own from wool roving:  TUTORIAL)
2" covered elastic hairband

1)  From the top of the button, push one end of the elastic through
a hole in the button to form a loop.

2)  Push the second end through the other hole.

3)  Use a little hot glue to adhere the wool ball to the button.

Slip the elastic loops over your index finger or thumb and get sewing!
