I think I have a new addiction


It's official I have a new addiction !  I have been collecting little containers for quite some time now with the intention of making little pin cushions.

Having no spare cash doesn't mean that I can't surround myself with brand new pretty things.  This little dish cost just 50c at the local thrift shop and the fabrics were from my stash.  So a cheap little addition to my collection.


And I made this little bucket full of yumminess !!  It stands just 2 Inches high.  Isn't it adorable?


I have these adorable little egg cups and this little glass trinket dish just waiting for a pin cushion addition - $1.50 for all 3 - What a bargain !


And the most recent addition to my stash of containers waiting for inspiration to hit - A clown planter from the 1970's for $4.00

Why don't you give it a try and make yourself a pretty little pin cushion.  I would love to see what you come up with.

Hugs - Fee xx

Love your pin cushions. They are a particular favorite addition of mine as well and like you, I've been collecting containers to transform. I love the woven cushion - how clever are you :)

Thanks for the inspiration! I have a couple of "useless" ornaments from my 10th birthday party (53 years ago!) in the cupboard....cannot part with them but they will see the light of day again! Thanks Fee!

I love the 1st one. It is fantastic. How do you fix them into the containers and what do you use as filling for your pin cushions. I have been thinking about making one. Maybe a small project for when my new baby arrives and I need to do things during nap time (quick projects would give me some sense of accomplishment).

Hello, thank you for sharing the pincushions with us. I also have a few "containers" like yours.
Do you glue felt underneath so they don't slide too much on a polished table? Do you weigh them down with sand or small gravel? Beatrice (from France).

I think I will follow your new addiction ... as soon as we have the next "bric a brac".
Kind regards from France

These are adorable. What a good idea. They would make great presents, at least I would like to receive one. The top one is my favorite. I like to make lattice pies, came to mind.
