Crafty Little Pincushion Inspiration
This adorable little pincushion was tucked inside one of those bags of lace I showed you in the last post. It is so clever I though I would show it because it makes me think of SO many ideas.
It is tiny and sits right there on your finger like a ring.
It feels like it is very tightly stuffed with fiberfill, making it so light you hardly notice it is there.
Click this one bigger. It appears to be made from the plastic screw-on top from a pop bottle. There are two holes drilled it it to insert the elastic "ring". I expect it is knotted on the inside and I can see a little ooze of hot glue that is holding everything together. The lace is glued around the outside.
Can you just picture this made using some an adorable character print or some vintage barkcloth. And what about rick rack or flat braid or vintage tatting glued around the side.
This little guy just got my ideas popping. I will keep it on my desk but maybe one of you will pick up the inspiration and run with it!
