Molcajete Pin cushions
These are very simple to make.
You need a plastic salsa dish (molcajete).
Fabric, fiberfill, ribbon, rick rack, buttons,
thread, needle, and a glue gun.
I used a coffee filter as a pattern. Cut the fabric using the filter.
Then make a running stitch, by hand, on the edge of the fabric.
Pull the thread tight, gatherind the fabric almost into a ball.
Fill with fiberfill. Tie off the thread. Shape and glue into
the molcajete with a glue gun.
Then just decorate with ribbon or rick rack. I used small wooden thread spools and wrapped coordinating thread and glued them onto the bows I made with ribbon.
Add a button and voila'.
