Day 10# Doughnut Pin Cushion

I love sewing. Now, I'm desperate in pin cushions needed. It's a very useful sewing accessories. I really need it to take hold needles and pins easily, and keep them tidily and also easily to collect them. I always lost them and falling onto the floor when I'm sewing, then i should buy again and again. Its fun and easy to make pin cushions. You can create in a various shapes, size and forms. You can also put any decoration, embroidery and any other applique.
This time i want to share with you how to make doughnut pin cushions.

The materials and tools you need are :

Felt fabric in a various color, Dacrons or cotton,
sewing threads,
scissors, pencil or pen and doughnut template.
