Step 1: Fabric

Here we need to cut about a 1in. diameter circle. Then sew 1/4 of an inch from the edge of the fabric as shown in the picture.

Step 2: Gathering the Fabric

Now we will need to gather the fabric. Gather enough so it looks like a bonnet. Then put the batting in the fabric. Now you need to gather the rest so its completely closed.

Step 3: Closing Up the Cushion

Now that you have the cushion is completely gathered you need to make sure it doesnt come un-done What you need to do is sew through the cloesed part of the pin cushion. Once you have four inches of thread left you can tie it off. Then cut off the excess thread.

Step 4: Glueing the Pin Cushion

Now you can glue the ugly closed up side down into the bottle cap and hold it for a few miniutes. Dont put the pins in until the glue is dried, or your pins will be glued to the pin cushion.

ENJOY!
