This was easy - 4 or more graded sizes of circles cut from variety of green fabric. Do running stitch 1/4" from edge to form a loose yo-yo and stuff each section. Use embroidery thread to loop around creating 4 divided sections. Stack and stitch together. Add a bell or star to top and glue to a base wide enough and heavy enough to hold tree. Moosegirl

Shawnemily, thank you so much for the pincushion and other surprises. Love them all, and they arrived at a time when I needed a pick me up, so thank you. Will post pics when camera and computer decide to communicate.

For all you pincushion aficionados, I made a pin cushion with a thread catcher for myself but want to do one that has the plastic ring to hold it open. Please help my feeble mind find the plastic you put into it.

Clear as mud?

Thanks!
Suzanne

Just make a casing around the top of the thread catcher and slip a 3/8" piece of firm plastic into the casing. Could use template plastic or a piece of a whipped topping bowl, etc.
