Piggy Pincushion

I've been wanting to make one of these little pincushions for a long time. I finally sat down and did it the other night. It was so easy to do and didn't take much time at all. First, I cut a circle from a remnant and made a loose stitch around the bottom. Then stuffed it with foam before I pulled the thread tight. I stuffed paper in the bottom of the planter then glued my fabic ball on top with E6000 glue. I waited a few minutes for it to dry then just added embellishments. Pretty simple.

This glue sticks to just about anything and is really durable.
