I am addicted to making pincushions. I just love them! I use broken spoons, eggcups, non broken spoons, candle holders amongst many other things, preferably old, tattered and tarnished (sounds like something I've heard before). I also like to use crocheted flowers from old doilies, bits of lace and buttons to give them the right look.
Here are a few of my pincushion makings. I have many more that I will show you in future posts.
This pincushion I made from an old eggcup which I bought some time ago in an antique store just before it closed down.
I salvaged this broken spoon and turned it into a sweet little pincushion by adding little lace butterflies and a crocheted flower, and to top it off a little rhinestone as the center of the flower.
I just love to dig through all my bits and pieces of lace, buttons and any other little treasures I can think of.
It now has started a new life as a little petite pincushion, thanks to the idea I received from a fellow blogger. I think it just looks so neat. Don't you?
Have a peaceful and creative day,
