Fashion and Function Pin Cushion Ring Tutorial

Created by: Amy Mickelson

Designer Tips

  • Create a cardboard template 2.5 times the diameter of the bezel (approximately 2.25" for this ring).
  • Using a doubled 36" piece of sewing thread, knotted at one end, sew a running stitch around the edge of the fabric piece about 5mm in from the edge.
  • Add stuffing and draw the fabric in by pulling the thread tight. Once you've achieved a round shape that fits the bezel cup, secure the thread with several knots and cut excessive thread.
  • Glue into bezel using E-6000 and let dry overnight. Gluing Hints for Metal Findings (PDF)
