Welcome to this months box: Go Nuts For Doughnuts!
After last months slightly more time consuming project, we have gone for a 'quick & can make this in front of the tv' project. 'Go Nuts for Doughnuts!' is a felt pin cushion to brighten up your sewing workspace. Enjoyable to make and can easily be completed with a few stitches.
We also have a bonus mini-kit this month with a pack of self cover buttons and little fabric squares. If you haven't used these before, simple instructions are provided in this eMagazine.
If you like this project here are some more inspirational doughnut crafts (these all link through to our Pinterest board where you can click through to them):
Don't fancy making a pin cushion? What about adapting the project to a keyring, mug holder or garland? If you have any extra felt in your stash there is this ultra-cute doughnut collar too!

Cover Button Mini Kit Cover buttons are a treasure. We make them with no project in mind using up left over scraps of fabric. Then they always seem to add that 'just right' finishing touch to future projects.
You don't need any special tools. Cut a circle of fabric about a centimetre wider in diameter than the backing piece of the button. Using an embroidery thread, sew a running stitch around the outside of the circle close to the edge. Pull the thread so the fabric balloons. Pop in the top of your cover button then pull the thread tight. Tie the thread (double knot) and push the fabric onto the teeth of the top. Push the back of the cover button on until it clicks.
