Coin purse turned Pin Cushion!

Scroll down for my Reverse Confetti Color Challenge post....

Did you all see the new Coin Purse Dies over at Papertrey?  SO fun right?  Well, I had to stop in and share my first project with you.  Yes, I made this adorable SUPER easy Pin Cushion first before I made the yellow felt coin purse.  I was inspired by Erin's amazing dies and just how easy they are to use.  

SO, here is my new pin fusion....


The top is fabric and I used Raspberry Fizz felt for the bottom. 


I cut this the same way I did for the coin purse I made.  I rounded one side, and then taped it in to cut the other side.  It was very easy to line up, just watching for the holes in the die.  I would recommend running the die through a couple of times back and forth to cut the holes nice and clean.  


I didn't take a picture of the actual top, but I used this iron-on fusible interfacing on the back of my fabric.  The die was able to cut the fabric beautifully.  


I stitched it up using green embroidery floss and stuffed it full of batting.  Then I added a True Black button in the center for a little decoration.  


It is going to sit right here in front of my computer.  Easy to reach!  



I have heard lots of buzz and excitement about these dies, so I can't wait to see what you all create!  
Thanks for coming by today!
