  • fabric preferably drapy, durable and tightly woven
  • elastic for waistband
  • carded wool, the softer the better
  • soap for felting the wool
  • thread and sewing needle
  • ribbon for the side of lib, optional


Felt a soft ball of wool using soap it is so pose to be slightly larger that the lid and still soft to keep it light. Cover it with fabric by sew a gathering thread and gather evenly and secure.


Then cover the lid in the same way and secure.

    Å vad fina de blev! Men jag fattar inte riktigt hur man ska göra med gummibandet? Ska det runt hela locket eller bara sättas fast i kanterna?

      Tack så mycket det är inte svårt alls om man tovar ullen till en boll först annars är det mycket svårare and få det jämnt.
      Det skall bara stickas in emellan lagren och sys fast.

    What a cute idea – I would never have thought of making my own wrist pincushion. Now they can be made in way cuter fabrics!
