    You need a cookie cutter (Michaels) , some fiberfill, a scrap, some white glue, & some felt.

    Turn the cookie cutter over and stuff with fabric & fiberfill.

    Glue a felt heart on the back & weigh it down to dry.

    Decorate in your own wonderful way. The hardest part is getting the sticker off. I love all of you!

    You're so creative! I just love all your pincushions and have been making some with your help. I've been scrounging thrift stores for different types of things to use to make pincushions with. My DH says that I'm going to have to get rid of some of my other collections if I'm going to start a pincushion one. LOL

    I love to take them to quilting retreats and give them away.

    This is so brilliant, you could use any shape plastic cookie cutter, when I think of all the ones I've passed up at yard sales. Thanks so much for the wonderful idea.

    Question, the side you put the felt on - is that the top or bottom?

    I think before adding the felt heart you could tuck in a few of those glass candle rocks that you can get from the dollar store to give the cushion a bit of weight. Why couldn't other shapes of cutters be just as cute as these are but go with other seasons...eggs? pumpkins? the list goes on...

    Dotty... too cute!!!
    Just remembered a pm from you about your friends... since you are such a creative person... why not use a seashell for your friends & fill it the same way using your seashell fabric??
    Just a thought, as I remember you saying they love the ocean!
    Keep those ideas of yours coming... Love them!
    Bookmarked! :P

    Those are darling. I have had good luck using GooGone to remove labels.

    Forgot to menton.... baby oil removes stickers/labels/price tags! Learned this by accident years ago & have used it ever since! Always have a small travel bottle just for that purpose!
