Pincushion and Pencil Holder

I wanted to share a couple of fun projects with you that I recently completed. The first is the pincushion I made that was inspired by the one Michele from The Scrap Shoppe created.

I started with a frame I purchased at Hobby Lobby and fabric to match my room. I lined up the fabric so the flower pattern would be in the center. Once I had it all assembled I thought it needed a little extra touch so I decided to paint in the grooves of the frame to add a little extra color. Now when I am doing a project and need pins it is so much quicker than trying to dig them out of the pin container and it looks better as well.  

I have several containers I use around my craft area for pens, markers, etc. but I kept noticing all the writing utensils around the computer were scattered everywhere so I decided to fix the problem by recycling a Pringles can. I cut a piece of paper that would wrap around the can and then dressed it up with a little lace and ribbon. Now everything has its place around the computer as well.

Now I have my pins and pens organized. J

Happy Crafting!
