The Project Is Perked
Really, it was hardly complicated enough to call it a project but I did finish it up last night. If you follow my blog then you know I love sewing notions and accumulate a lot of pins and needles from the poke sacks I buy. I do actually use the pins to secure things in my inspiration kits and sewing trims I sell on Etsy so there is always an assortment of pincushions sitting on my desk.
I had set the broze baby shoes on my desk and one of my tomatoe pincushions wandered its way on to the ashtray spot, as things sometime do. Ash tray and baby shoe in the same sentence. Whoa, that was a different era!
At first I was thinking I would just stuff the little shoes but the openings are very small so they made tiny pincushions. Instead, I decided to go with "muffin top" shoes and simply hot glued the velvet cushions on top. I pulled the SugarCushion off my Etsy because the color worked perfectly. It is not attached so I can lift that one off when I need the pins on one of the other worktables.
I think my mother would be happy to know these little shoes are still loved and used a half century later!
