    I haven't made one but I like the little one that is made from the bottle top and you wear it like a ring. I have 2 of them, one for sharp pins and one for ball point pins. They are small and so convenient, especially for alterations.

    Here's mine. It was my mom's - she bought it many years ago at a craft shop in North Carolina when she was there on vacation. She passed away 29 years ago and she used it for many years before she died.

    I took it apart and washed it, replaced the filling, and put it all together again. The old stuffing had 28 sewing needles imbedded in it!

    Here's mine that I keep by my sewing machine. I made it from a teacup and matching saucer I found at Goodwill. This is my second one...the first one bounced of the table one time when it was too close to the edge and broke. :(

    I didn't add steel wool...I just used leftover batting scraps to fill the cup.

    Have fun! It's really neat to shop for cups for different people and make them to give as gifts! Been there, done that! :)

    I was given one like the bright one on top and I just love it. It was even filled when I received it. I carry it with me all the time. Yours are so cute. Love the chicken too.
