Day 26 Pin cushion

I have a lot of pin cushions, but I never seem to be able to find one when I need it. I think they go hang out with all the missing socks. I expect this one will wander off before too long as well.

The instructions for this called for trimming cork to fit the bottom of the interior hoop.  I was fortunate that the 4 inch hoop I had was the exact size of some cork coasters that also hang out in my craft stash. Super easy with no cork cutting involved.

I could also see making this with a lot more batting, and covering a pretty fabric with some lace to make a place for displaying hatpins, if you were a hatpin-collecting kind of person.
