Making Handmade Pin Cushions Using Vintage Orphaned Odds And Ends

Lovely Vintage Pin Cushions Made From Odds And Ends

I came across this cute idea while shopping at the Sandwich Mass Flea Market over the summer. This gal takes orphaned "bottoms" of vanity dishes, kitchenwares and odds and ends and uses them as a base for handmade pin cushions. This idea serves as a reminder to think twice about discarded vintage items that may not be in intact. There is a buyer for everything!

  1. I'm all about odds-n-ends! I just sorted through tall the wool blend felts from old craft kits I've collected to design my own vintage tree skirt. Been planning for years and finally in the design stage. Hoping to have it done by next Christmas!
