So the count down to Christmas has begun and I am feeling pretty unorganised with gifts for friends and family (someone please send help)!
I love giving thoughtful or handmade presents and have found the perfect combination of both with these make-your-own craft kits. Not only are they super cute but are the perfect gift for a craft loving friend.
I have teamed up with the online gift store The Treasured to offer you the chance to win a DIY Doughnut Pin Cushion craft kit from The Make Arcade this festive season. Scroll down to see what’s inside the kit & more details on how to enter.
Each doughnut craft kit comes with full instructions, materials and tools needed, all you need is some scissors and a few pins. There are a variety of kits on The Treasured and this one is great for beginner sewers as all you need to know is a basic running stitch.
To start making the pin cushion I cut out the paper shapes included in the pack and pinned to the coordinating coloured felt before cutting around to form the base of my doughnut.
Next I lined up my pink felt shape to one of the brown shapes making sure the holes and edges matched, then stitched them together in the center and around the edge of the pink shape to create the ‘icing’. Then I lined up the second brown shape on the bottom, stitching all the way around but leaving a big enough gap to stuff the cushion with the wadding provided.
I found there was plenty of stuffing in the pack, I only used around half and my pin cushion was lovely and plump so didn’t need the rest. Once I sealed up the hole, I cut small ‘sprinkles’ from the coloured felt provided and used the fabric glue to stick them to the top on my doughnut. I love the finished result, a cute, colourful pin cushion made in around 30 to 60 minutes. For someone who loves sewing this is an easy and fun activity and the pin cushion can be used over and over again for other sewing activities too.
Fancy winning a doughnut pin cushion craft kit for yourself or to give to a friend just in time for Christmas?
