    You come up with the BEST ideas!! That is adorable fabric too. I used to have some of that. Those are the happiest little leprechans, aren't they?! What kind of glue do you use? Hot glue?

    I threw/dribbled a lot of tacky glue. Honestly, it took 5 mins & the girls will think I am a genius!

    It helps if you have a box of those ring things. You think I should throw this clutter out. Then you think,. but I could do something with them!

    So cute and very very quick!!
    I have a very very old pincushion made from a jar ring that has rose velvet center with a ribbon around the jar ring itself. I found it in my d mil things when she passed. No one else in the family sews but me so I was fortunate to get it along with 2 crocheted ones.
    I collect pincushions and love to see new ones.

    And if you have the jars too, just think what you could pack in there. A little sewing kit with needles and spools of thread, some fun buttons, embroidery threads with a pair of snips, hand cream, even some small iron-on transfers or quilt templates (i.e., hexagon papers). What a fun gift for a fellow crafter.

    For a non-crafting friend, you could include basic replacement buttons, thread, needles, needle threaders, iron-on patches, band-aids (you know they stab themselves!). Such a cute idea for a sewing first aid kit. Dotty, you always have the cutest ideas.

    These are so cute and fast to make. Do you have the colored plastic rings in your area? We sometimes find them at AC Moore's or Joann's, especially around Christmas. I am sure they are more expensive and not as stable as your pretty metal ones.
