The Cutest Little Pig!

This darling little pig moved into my sewing room today!  I've been on the look-out for a sweet little vintage animal planter for a fun little pin cushion project and this darling little pig was just the one!  I though I'd share the project - it's easy and such a great gift for someone.  Or to brighten up your sewing room!

You will need:
Vintage ceramic planter (found on eBay or antique store)
Fabric scrap
Small felt scrap
Needle and thread
Pillow stuffing
Glue Gun

Cut your fabric scrap into a large circle and hand sew a gathering stitch around the edge of your fabric circle.

Pull the thread, forming a pocket.

Stuff the little pocket with pillow stuffing and close the pocket by pulling the thread tight and tying a knot to keep it closed.

Take the small piece of felt, cut it into a circle and glue that on to the little pocket to close off the opening nicely.

Set aside the little pin cushion and run a bead of hot glue along the top of the planter.  

Quickly stick your pin cushion in the hole and you're done!

I just think this little pig pincushion is the sweetest little addition to my sewing room!  

Happy Sewing and Crafting, friends!
