Jack-o-lantern bottle cap pincushion

I wanted to show some basic steps on how to make a bottle cap pincushion.
Cut out a circle the same size as the bottle cap and a long strip the same size as the side of it.

Sew the two pieces together. 

Cut out a 3" to 4" circle.  With a running stitch, gather it and stuff it with fiber filling.
Then sew that to the base.
Thats all there is to it.  Now time to embroider your pincushion.

I turned mine into a jack-o-lantern.  The green stem is crochet with a size 3 hook.

You are not limited to bottle caps.  You can use jar lids as well.

The circle for the top was cut at 9" around.

Happy crafting!
