It’s been years! Just wanted to post some pics of things I’ve been making. Took a while to remember how to do it!

I found DIY tutorials all over the web for this one. I couldn’t resist making one especially as my pins were in a mess!
Basically you need a jar, needle and thread, a favourite piece of fabric, some pretty ribbon or bias binding, a handful of wadding and a glue gun. 
Cut a circle of fabric (I used a plate a bit bigger than the lid), use running stitch around the edge so you can gather it all together in a ball with the wadding squashed in the middle.
Put hot glue over the top of the jar lid and press the fabric and wadding ball into the glue.
Glue ribbon around the edge of the lid. 
There you have a fab little jar for your pins and a handy pin cushion for when you need it.
