Redemption in a Mini Pincushion
Surprise, surprise the weather turned gorgeous this past weekend here in our Nations capital and I enjoyed the sun outside at a few choice locations. Usually one to bring along my own water bottle when venturing outdoors, I forgot. Inevitably I got thirsty in the hot sun and needed to quench it. So, I did the one thing that I really hate to do and bought a bottled water.
To give myself a little bit of redemption, I gladly toted the empty bottle around for the rest of the day with all intentions for bringing it home, destined for the recycle bin. On my return home, I instead left it on my desk and contemplated the water bottle’s next life as a possible craft.
Turning to my trusty internet, I came across thewildhare on Etsy, showcasing mini pincusions. Made from felt and a water bottle cap, I couldn’t help but fall in love with the “Death Cap.” Seriously, how cute are they?
Available in red and white, Death Cap Mushroom and brown and white, Fat Free Chocolate Chip Muffin, thewildhare has come up with a great way to recycle a part of the water bottle and provide great inspiration on how to recycle random found objects into new and beautiful creations.
Think of something else that could be done with my water bottle? Leave your ideas in the comments.
