Small things

 (Yes, I can hear you all muttering things about 'small things...small minds', so don't think you're being sneaky about it!!)
Twelve of these wee pincushions - made with a sterling silver napkin ring as the base and some scrap fabric, beads & embroidery floss.  Easy peasy!!

  11. What a great idea! Of course, now you need to tell us what you do with the bottom of the napkin ring and how you hold it all together. Glue?

  12. Lucky scraps nestled in silver napkin rings. Bit like being born with a silver spoon in your mouth?

  14. Adorable...and no need to use sterling silver ,I have some interesting odd bakelite or plastic ones, and I've seen china ones too...fun to look for odd mapkin rings in the thrift stores

  15. That is great and I was thinking that. I love little things. Little books, little nick nacs, little cards...you get the message.
    Hope you had a great day and thanks for the tutorial too, I probably need to make one since I just use my chair when I am in the living room :)
