Hairbrush Pin Cushion

Call me crazy, but I’ve always thought that hairbrushes look like pin cushions…anyone agree? Well, they do make very cute pin cushions anyway :) Here’s how I made mine:

I mean they could’ve been separated at birth…right?!

    This is so cute!! My daughters are just getting really interested in the whole crafts thing (that I’m obsessed with) and I can’t wait to make a few of these for them.

    I wish I could “pinterest” this link. I couldn’t. Not even directly to a picture. I really like this pinchushion! I need to dig into my craft dresser to select felts to use…

    I love everything about this! It would also be really easy to add an elastic band for arm-strapping purposes. I, for one, think that walking around my dress form with a hairbrush pin cushion on my bicep would be the height of fashion. ;)

    thezenofmaking…I absolutely agree!!!! I love that idea and I would certainly wear mine around as well :) I’m sure it would catch on in no time! Haha! Thank you for your comment and sense of humor :)

    Hi Sweetie! I followed a “pin” for your pin cushion hairbrush to this blog. However, the tute is no longer visible–and when I clicked on a link, I received a dead link message. Could you please send the pin cushion brush tutorial to my email address–or have you, perhaps, moved your blog to another server/web hosting service?

    I would love to make one of these for each of my daughters (ages 17 and 24).

    Thank you in advance!

      Hi Lisa–

      Sorry for the delayed response…I’ve had some issues with my blog (as you can tell)! I will get the tutorial up and running as soon as possible..thank you for letting me know!

          Ah, I remember this! When I wrote my first comment, my daughters were 17 and 24; now they’re 18 and 25! (lol)

          Just giving you grief! I, personally, can’t remember the last time I changed the images on my home page–so I completely understand !

          Thank you for fixing it/re-uploading the tutorial. :) I just took my sewing/embroidery machine in for repair, so now would be an excellent time to make these. :)

          Thank you again! <3
