Every so often I still break out my sewing machine and do some beginner level sewing projects. But I found that I hate taking out my sewing pins from the little case when I need to pin something. So I thought I might as well make myself a pin cushion. But, I didn’t want just any pin cushion I wanted something a little different. Then while browsing the fabric at JoAnn I saw a cute snowflake patterned one and my oldest son told me “why don’t you make a snow globe with that” and I thought a snow globe pin cushion would be great. I love when my boys give me craft ideas!

Supplies for the snow globe pin cushion:
- Fairfield World Poly-Fil
- Blue glitter snowflake fabric
- Cricut Maker (optional to cut out snowmen)
- Cricut Felt (optional for snowmen)
- Sewing Pins
- Marker (I used a thin gray Crayola marker lol)
- Hot Glue Gun
- Sewing Machine
- I used an old can to trace the circles on the fabric
- Old Mason Jar Lid
I began by tracing out two circles each came out to be 6 1/4 inches in diameter.
Next I cut out the circles and pinned them together wrong side out. Next I sewed them together with a 1/4 inch inseam. I made sure to leave an opening about 2 inches big. Next I turned it right side out. And I filled it up with Fairfield World’s Poly-Fil. Next I hand sewed the fabric ball shut. Then I glued down the stuffed fabric ball into my old mason jar lid. I started by adding hot glue to the center and holding that down until it stuck. Next I added hot glue to the inside lid lip and pressed the fabric ball back until that stuck. Finally I repeated that last step for the other side of the fabric ball. Now, you could leave the snow globe pin cushion as is and call it a day but I wanted to add a little detail. I used my Cricut Maker and Cricut felt to cut out 2 little snowmen. I then painted the top hat black. Next, I used my hot glue gun to stick them onto one side of the snow globe pin cushion. And, for me now it is done. I hope this snow globe pin cushion inspires you to create your very own. Happy crafting and sewing!
