My friend Marlena is a seamstress. She makes my curtains for me. She makes lots of people's curtains. She was asked by a friend of hers to come up with some ideas for a new gift shop she is opening. Marlena asked if I had any gifty ideas. I came up with a few things and she asked if I would make a sample of one of the pin cushions I had mentioned. She thought it could be used as a jewelry holder.
So I went to work.
I got the pattern and video instructions here.
I got the candle stick at the Dollar Tree for a dollar - duh.
I toyed with spray painting the candle stick, but decided to go au naturele.
I think the mini Christmas ornament is my favorite part.
