Mini Pincushion and Pin Toppers

I have been wanting to make some mini pin toppers except I did not want to spend money to buy shrinky dinks. So off I went to search online and found out that #6 plastic is the same as the shrinky dink plastic! A great explanation on this can be found at Education.com.
Once I made some of my cute pins of course I needed a cute pincushion. I made this adorable little pincushion from a soda bottlecap, some craft felt and embroidery floss.

Will be adding some of these in my Etsy shop for Valentine's. Stay tuned.

Happy crafting new year!
