Cake Pin Cushions

I found these on The DIY Dish and they are so cute and super easy! Perfect for last minute gifts!!


4 sheets of 9x12 felt. Cut into: 8- 2 1/2 x 12 and 4 1 1/2 x 12

Glue gun and glue sticks

1 magnet (either a disc magnet or sheet magnet cut into a small circle)

Any embellishment... Buttons, ribbon, ric rac, ribbon flowers, beads, etc.

Start with your 8 pieces of felt that you precut to 2 1/2 x 12. Lay two pieces one on top of the other and begin to roll them up. When you have about two inches left at the end lay another one on top and continue to roll, repeat this until you have rolled all 8 pieces together.

Take your hot glue and glue the end down.
Repeat these steps with your 1 1/2 x 12 strips.
You should now have the two layers of your cake.
Next embellish as you wish.
Once you are done embellishing you will have an adorably unique pin cushion!
Now were you wondering what that magnet on the top layer was for?

Easy right? How many are you going to make?

I am sure you could make these a little differently and let your little ones play with them as felt play food ;) 
But this one is definitely going on my sewing table!
