Pin Cushion Frame

Double post today!!~

You know when you become very familiar with sewing with sewing machine,
you start to use pins, lots of pins

even though i have like 2 small pin cushions, 
i wanted to make another one so that i can keep it in my room.

i came up with this idea because i wanted to get rid of a frame because it won't stand on my desk
so i finally after 4 years of annoyance, decided to give a new look to the frame

 Before
After

now the tutorial of making of::

1. Gathering Materials:
- Frame 
- Foam board
- Cotton
- Fabric (i used flannel)
- Pen
- Glue gun
- Box knife or exacto knife
- Plier 
- Chalk
- Scissor
- Buttons
---

 2. Taking the Frame apart:
- Glass is not needed, so take it out
- using the back support of the frame
---

 3. Take off the back support leg thing
i used pen and box knife to cut away as much as i can

then using the plier, pull the entire thing out
---

 4. trace the foam board with the back support of the frame
 - cut it out to with box cutter or your way
---

5. Put the foam board into the frame and trace the inside
---

 6. place the foam on top of the fabric and use chalk to draw the outline of where you will be cutting
- when you cut the fabric make sure to leave extra space of fabric all around the foam board
---

7. Grab cotton to fit inside the red line, 
the more you put the puffier the cushion will be
---

 8. Find the center o where the Button will go and trace the button
- then sew the button
---

 9. Now sandwich the materials together,
- Foam board
- Cotton
-  Fabric with the button sew on the botton
---


10. Use hot glue gun to glue the fabric onto the foam board like so
(TIP:: i used threading needle to tread the button once more to the foam board so it gives a better texture)
---

 11. Now take this and put it into the frame : )
there you have it~ done

For tomorrow's post i'm thinking about making either 
a mini top hat or 
crown or 
playing games =D
