I used my handy E-6000 glue and attached a small clay flower pot to a clay flower pot saucer, adding the saucer gives you a great place to hold thread, buttons or other sewing notions you may need while sewing or crafting. You could even add a larger saucer to give you more space for extra stuff.
I showcase two versions of my pincushions, in the first one I used a salad plate as a template and cut out a fabric circle, gathered the edge with a needle and thread then stuffed with fiberfill. In the second version I inserted the tomato pincushion I made a few weeks ago into the pot to use as my pincushion. Because of the tight fit in both I did not have to glue the pincushion into the pot, the pins are corsage pins and I added the flower beads to give them a really fun garden look. As always I found a tutorial to share if you would like to create your own flower pot pincushion to give as a gift or just add a touch of Spring to your sewing area.
The tutorial gives you an easy way to make the pincushion that requires no sewing and you use a hot glue gun to attach the pincushion into the pot. A great tutorial that is fast and easy to put together.
I hope you create your own little garden to display in your sewing space, anywhere in your home or share a little bit of Spring with someone else. If you drop in and check out my blog please leave a comment and let me know what you think. I hope you enjoy a walk in the sunshine and don't forget to stop and smell the roses as you take an inspirational walk down "life in the craft lane".
