My first bottle cap pincushion




A special thanks to jen segrest for posting a how-to tutorial on flickr for her darling little bottle cap pin cushions. I've been wanting one tiny enough to fit in my bead box and this is it. It certainly would have never occurred to me to make one like this...kudos to her generosity and cleverness!
Of course, being a beader, I had to add a couple of beads for the birdies eyes and a tiny glass ladybug bead...
Here's the URL for the tutorial on flickr...

It was fun to make...now I'm soliciting 2-liter bottle caps from friends and when I get the baskets finished, I'll make a few more....I've got some ideas for fun color combinations.
