Blue Pin Cushion
This is a napkin I bought at Anthropologie a couple of years ago. Not only did I like the fabric but I loved these little ball things on each corner. To make them, cut out a circle, experiment for a size you like. Sew a running stitch around the edge, stick some fiber fill in the center and pull the threads tight. I wrapped the thread around it a couple of times and then sew through the wrappings 2 times and knotted it off. I turned the little balls around so the raw edges were on the outside instead of the way they are on the napkin.
I ended up using this for my applique and the size is not too small! Oh well I now have a nice small little pin cushion.....
