12 Days of Christmas - Hand Made Presents - day 2

My second present is a pin cushion in a frame. The one at the background is a frame from IKEA and fits a 4"x6" picture. I call this my "serious seamstress" version, as the cushion is very large (well - you could make it into 12"x12"). The smaller frames are from Michael's and are much smaller and work nicely with just your "sew on a button" seamstresses :)

With the pin cushion, you remove the glass or plastic to allow the fabric to pop out of the frame. I used hot glue to adhere the fabric to the frame and then added the background. And a great tip: fill the cushion with STEEL WOOL! why?? this keeps the pins sharp! So there is my tip for all your seamstresses too
