PIN CUSHIONS!!!

thanks to the inspiration i received from robin, i took some lil baskets that i have had sitting around for about, oh i don't know, 4 years and made lil pin cushions outta em.

i cut the handle off the basket so it wouldn't get in the way. i took some stuffing and filled some fabric i had laying around and mushed it around until it had a nice shape. i then weaved ribbon around the top of the basket and then hotglued the stuffing/fabric inside the basket.

i then make some pins with my shrinky dink set and these work so much better than those printable shrinky dink sheets. my.gosh.are.these.addictive.to.make.

i sent these out in swaps and they have arrived to their destinations by now so its safe to post.

thanks robin!!!

hugs :)

I think these are the cutest things ever! I love how the pins match the fabric. my daughter, as usual, tried to steal mine but I managed to keep it on my sewing table. at least for now...

Cuute! Love the shrinky dink pins too. I've been wanting to try that for a while now.

I love the pincushions and the pins. As I sew more, I realize that I need some pincushions badly, so that is my next project. I haven't been able to find shrinky dink stuff either - and I really want to try my hand at the pins. Great job!
