National DIY day is just around the corner. I hope all of you DIYers are as excited as I am! As you can probably guess already from my DIY posts, I love anything crafty especially when it comes to home and interior. So naturally, becoming an ambassador for National DIY day was super exciting for me as it’s right up my street!

When is National DIY Day you ask? It’s on the 2nd of April and the lead up to it has me all DIY ready. (For those of you following my social network accounts, you’ll know how I have been preparing.)

This particular DIY, I chose after realising that I own so many pins but I don’t have a pin cushion!? Which is crazy because (for those of you who don’t know) I wear a hijab. And to hold the hijab in place I use pins. Including the fact that I am also a sewer, you can imagine a pin cushion is seriously something that would come in handy!

On that note, for several reasons, this pin cushion can come in handy for a lot of you too! Even if you don’t sew, I’m sure most of you keep pins at home just because you know you’ll end up needing them. (And it can become a little annoying having them lying around the house, especially when you accidentally step on one.) And for you hijab wearers, a cute little pin cushion will give your pins the perfect little home they need.

The reason I love this DIY is there is no-sewing-involved at all, none what-so-ever. And it’s so simple! Read along and I’ll show you how to make a no-sew DIY pin cushion!

Cut a long, rectangular piece out of your fabric to cover
your tin can with. 
Make sure it can fold over and under the tin can.

to the long strip of fabric and stick

Fold over the fabric into the top of the tin, 
covering a little bit of the top and glue down.

 Step 4.
At the bottom of the tin, 
slit the fabric a few times 
so it is easy to fold over and cover 
the bottom. Apply glue to each section and fold over

 Step 5.
Cut a square piece of fabric.

 Step 6.
Put some polyfill into the middle
of the fabric and close it up.

Wrap some thread around the fabric to hold it in place. 
Tie up the thread and knot it.

Neaten it up, put some pins in and you are done!

  1. It's quite easy and cool. And easy to teach the kids at school. Plus, I love the color shade and the stripes of the fabric you have used to make. Nice DIY 🙂

  2. I've made one of these! I love them – all my pins no longer go missing now and my husband has stopped complaining about finding my pins everywhere around the house! Lol – This is so cute!
