This is a useful pincushion for when you need to bring your sewing projects with you.
Step 1: YOU NEED
-a surprise plastic egg;
-a scrap piece of fabric.
-all purpose glue.
Step 2: CUT THE FABRIC
Cut a long narrow stripe of fabric.
It should be really long (depending on how big your surprise plastic egg is), and tall the double of the high of the bottom part of the plastic egg.
Step 3: FOLD
Fold it in half lengthwise.
Step 4: ROLL
Roll it up.
Step 5: TRY
Try if it fit well your plastic egg. If is too big, just cut a piece of it away.
Step 6: GLUE
Pace some glue on the bottom of the plastic egg.
Step 7: PLACE FABRIC
Insert your fabric roll in the egg, and push it down well. It should arrive about at the edge of the half plastic egg.
Step 8: PIN IT
Just place your pins and needles inside.
Step 9: PLACE TOP
Place the top on. Ready to put in your sewing bag!
Step 10: READY
It stand up by itself, as the bottom part is way heavier than the top one.
