Pin Cushion

Ive volunteered to run a stall for my WI at our village fair later in the year. I thought a "Homemade and Vintage" theme would enable most people to contribute to the stall. Ive been making a few things that I thought might sell, including this small button jar/pincushion combo. You know I love creative faffing!

Hi Diane thanks for your comments will have to have a meet up soon. Love the jar pincushion I have made one very similar before. I could make something small for your stall if you wish it would give me a purpose to do some making - actually I already have some doorstops you could have I made some for a small craft fair and they didnt sell (they are quite nice though).Let me know. Love Debs X Got to go got Nephew to get to school and I am not dressed yet tee hee too much time 'well used' on tinternet.

The pincushion looks lovely - great idea to have the buttons in the jar beneath.

Oh I NEED one of those - what a lovely idea. What did you use to fill out the pin cushion? It wasn't an odd sock was it!

Rosie said...

That is a great idea - everything in one place. I bet your stall will look super on the day:)

I could do with one of those. Bad luck I can't get to the fair. It is a great Idea. Faffing??? thats a new word for me.

I love that! It's so sweet and makes me want to run home and sew. I am sure your stall will be a big hit with anyone who sees it. :)

potterjotter said...

This looks really sweet - I don't sew and have no need of buttons or a pin cushion but I am tempted to make one all the same! You can't beat a bit of faffing...

Virginia said...

HOw adorable! I think you will have lots of customers that want to buy your lovely things Diane!

So sweet!

Ray+Joan said...

lovely idea don't forget to take your beautiful cards that you made too.

Gilly said...

Very crafty, Diane! The jar wouldn't be big enough for all my buttons, I'm afraid - I have a big jar of them that I don't want. If you care to pop across the Pennines any time, you can have them!

Your word verification is "shamed" - I feel all embarrassed now!

Look at you go with the crafting - everyone is in a crafting frenzy at the moment it would seem! Really cute! xxx
