This was the original, it was Mr. Rainbow Creek's Grandma Bs' pincushion. I adopted it after she passed away and I found it in her sewing box.
Cut a 10"X10" square from the fabric.
Now you will want to cut the fabric square into an approx 10" circle. Fold the square into a triangle and then fold in half several times to make a cone shape.
Don't worry if you missed and somehow end up with a flat side like I did, it will work out fine.
Insert the cardboard circle into the yo-yo and gently pull the threads to tightly cover the cardboard. Put a bead of glue along the edge of fabric and press it tightly to hold.
Use craft glue or hot glue gun to secure the ball of stuffing in tuna can, keeping the top as smooth as possible.
If you are using rick rack embellishment glue it to the outside edge of the hat brim.
Glue the hat top to the cardboard circle with hot glue gun or craft glue. Push down hard to make a good tight seam.
Embellish with tulle and ribbon hat band.
I tied a ribbon to a pair of thread snipper scissors and glued a piece of velcro to the hat and the bow to attach the scissors.
Here is my adorable Summer Strawberry hat pincushion. Cute enough to hang on the wall of your sewing room or use everyday to hold you pins and needles close by!
Are you going to try making this pincushion? Please comment and leave me a link for your pics if you do! I would love to see how yours turns out and how you choose to embellish it!
