Default I Used A Cow Creamer To Make A Pin Cushion

I couldn't resist this sweet cow creamer on ebay. I slipped a flat disk of felted wool yarn in her back and gave her a pink tongue for character. Her name is Blue Belle and she sits by my sewing machines.

Terrific idea....so much better than using it for it's original purpose - I never did like the 'vomiting cow' thing when they are used for milk. I was thinking of doing this with those vintage novelty planters (the small ones) or even little vases.

WOW, I have one very similar to yours!! My Dad had bought it sometime in the 60s when he was traveling on business in Europe. Now I know what to do with it. Haven't seen it since I moved.
