Ready for an easy to make pin cushion? These were very simple to make, though like most needle felting they do take some time to sit, and poke, poke, poke. (I completed all of these during a recent car trip.) They are certainly funky, but I love the bit of quirkiness they add to any sewing studio. While I do love my generic, magnetic pin holder, there is always room for a bit of handmade goodness.
By simply layering different colors of roving, I felted each until it was firm before adding the next layer. I made a few of various sizes, some for gifting, some for travel and, well, one to add to my own little sewing studio.
While needle felting pins are very sharp, kids love to get into the mix. My little guy is 3, and while he's at the younger age for such a task he does a great job. If you're looking for other felting ideas, tutorials or supplies, have a look at The Magic Onions. Woolbuddy's creatures are wonderfully awesome if you're looking to purchase a completed creation, or follow one of his lovely DIY kits to make your own.
