Cookie Cutters: Not Just For Cookies Anymore! Post # 27: Ladybug Cookie Cutter Pincushion
It’s not too late to make a last minute special gift for Mother’s Day. All you need is a metal cookie cutter, a little fabric, a metal pot-scrubber and a few other craft materials you probably have on-hand!
This is one cookie cutter craft item that somehow did not make it into the series yet. I was quite sure I had included a link to a tutorial, but in searching I do not see this mentioned! That is about to be rectified.
There are numerous tutorials on making cookie cutter pincushions and several on using a metal pot-scrubber to make a pincushion, but to my knowledge there is not one that combines both.
The metal scrubber will function to keep your pins & needles sharp.
This would be a great way to display a vintage cookie cutter and if you use vintage material, trim and buttons from you stash inherited from your grand-mother, this would make a wonderful memory craft!
- Metal outline cookie cutter
- Button or other embellishment
- Lace and other trims
- Metal pot-scrubber
- Heavy cardboard
- Decorative pins(link to tutorial below)
- Needle and embroidery thread
- Fabric glue
Costs: I had all material on-hand from other projects. I had the metal pot-scrubbers because I was making some teacup pincushions (17 to 25 cents per scrubber) . This is a $1 and up project.
Skill Level: Beginner to Intermediate. Minimum sewing.
Time To Complete: An evening. This would be a great rainy day activity or a great project for your tween. Knock out lots of these in a day to have on-hand for last minute Christmas gifts that look anything but “last minute”.
