SugarCushion

I found this sweet little sugar bowl at the local thrift.  The lid was broken and it was  sitting there pouting like a pretty girl who lost her hat in the wind.  I just had to bring it home and give it a second life as a "sugarcushion". 
The cushion is made from tightly stuffed fiber-fill enclosed in heavy pink cotton and covered again with lace net.  It is embellished with vintage tatting hand-sewn around the edge.  I have added a pink corsage pin and several vintage straight pins to pick up the vivid colors on the vintage bowl.
I am hooking up with the "No Tomatoes Pincushion Contest" at Arrow Sewing Cabinets.  Please click PoshGirlFriday, to check out the next entry in the hop.  In case you get lost, you arrived here from HongKongChic.  Thanks to the folks at Arrow for hosting and Rebecca for linking everything up and answering my questions!
For all my followers...  stay tuned because I have some plans for this little sugar cushion!
