DIY Pin Cushion from Chick-Fil-A Bowl

I'm a member of the Chick-Fil-A mom panel and got to try some tortilla soup for free. Lucky me, right? Opinions and craft idea are mine.

What do you do when you're given the challenge to upcycle a Chick-Fil-A tortilla soup bowl? Well, first you enjoy that tortilla soup of course! And then you get crafty with spray paint and fabric. I decided to turn mine into a cute pin cushion. Isn't it cute? Here's how you can make one too.


  • Small chicken tortilla soup bowl, clean and dry
  • Spray paint
  • Fabric (about 6 inches square)
  • Polyfil

Steps for making the pin cushion
  1. Trim the tabs off the corners of the bowl.
  2. Spray paint with two light coats of paint and let dry completely.
  3. Wrap fabric tightly around fabric and secure with a small rubber band.
  4. Apply a bunch of hot glue inside the bowl and press the fabric down into the bowl, rubber band side down. Hold while the glue cools.
  5. Add pins to pin cushion and sew your next masterpiece! (Or let it sit and be cute on your craft table, like I will.) 
What do you think of this DIY pin cushion? Will you make your own? What colors would you use?

New Cricut Access Plans

**This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

Hey there Cricut friends! If you’ve gone onto Design Space in the last week or so, you’ve seen that there are some new Cricut Access Membership Plans.  I’m going to tell you the differences between them so you can know what will work best for you!

You may be wondering if you will be required to use cartridges with your Cricut Explore. NOPE! (But -- if you do have a collection of carts already from your previous machines, you can still use them) There's a port on the machine where cartridges can still go even on the Explore and Explore Air machines. You also have the option of linking them to your Cricut Design Space account, and then you can use all of those images without having to switch out the physical cartridge each time.

So, on to the Access Plans. . .

I don't know about you guys, but I am done with winter! I know, I know, I can't complain too much because at least we're not still covered with snow like a lot of places I know of (including places I have lived before!) But we had an above normal amount of ice and snow this winter, and several days of cancelled school. Now the temps are back in the 40s like they should be, but it keeps raining, and I miss the sun!
