Karen from I Always Pick the Thimble shows how to make a pretty little pincushion out of a fun cotton print and a tea light candle base. A little embroidery in the center of the fabric makes them even prettier. The clear glass base gives the pincushion a nice weight. You can get the candle bases at most discount stores. Go to I Always Pick the Thimble for the tutorial.
