Summer Smooches Pincushion

I have been getting into the season for giving - and this is one of the gifts I have made - to give to a sewing loving relative!!  I used Summer smooches fabric cut into a circle and pulled over the top of an empty container (which used to hold buttons, or brads - I like to recycle lots of containers).  I put some stuffing into the container then stitched all around the edge of the circle, pulled it tight and tied a knot.  For the brim of the hat I made another larger circle of fabric which I then stitched in a running stitch all around the edge and pulled it tight over the top of a circle of cardboard.  The container of stuffing was glued onto the top of the brim, and some satin ribbon glued over the join and voila - a quick and easy pin cushion.
