Thrift Store Score: How-To Napkin Ring Pincushion

Make this thrift store pin cushion!

As we all know, thrift stores are a never ending source of materials and inspiration for our crafts!  I’m always on the lookout for interesting fabrics, embroidery hoops, thread, and odds and ends that don’t always have an obvious crafty purpose- like a napkin ring!  On a recent outing to one of my favorite thrift shops I discovered a bag with a copious amount of fabric squares, probably for quilting.  I knew I didn’t want to make one big project with all of them so I came up with a little project using one of the fabric squares and the napkin ring pincushion was born.  Follow these simple steps and you’ll be whipping up a bunch of these cuties in no time!
