for the glamorous seamstress

have fun with a giant heart pincushion ring!

...If Miss Extravaganza Anna Dello Russo would sew her own clothes, what would she use as a pincushion?

... my stylish, extravagant, glamorous, oversize, red felt, heart ring, of course!

make a statement pincushion heart ring: the supplies 

* E6000® glue
* scissors, red thread, needle

make it! the heart pincushion ring tutorial:

* cut two pieces of felt in a shape of a heart: mine is about 2-1/2" x 3"
* leave about 1/4" for seams allowance 

* sew around the heart and leave about 1-1/2" open on one side
* turn your heart inside out and stuff it
* sew close the side
* glue onto your ring base 

Wear it while you're doing your best sewing projects, pinning needles and pins, or... just as is as a big chunky cocktail ring, because... What Would ADR Do?

xox, d.
