    I made this pin cushion for my DD for her birthday. I was lucky to find a scrap fabric in my stash that coordinated with the design. When I gave it to my DD she recognized the fabric. She had made a sundress for my grand daughter out of it. The pin cushion now has two memories attached to it.

    FYI, the yellow fabric as the back drop was purchased from my local thrift store; 15 yards for $7.00.

    I love it. I belong to a pincushion group and I have a gravy boat we don't use. They will love it! Thank you for the wonderful idea.

    Oh my I have a sugar bowl that belonged to a dear friend and just can't throw it away; I just kept dusting it and this would make a great pincushion !

    Thanks for sharing !

    I have made pin cushions using teacups, but never thought about using a gravy boat! :)

    I have my grandmother's good dishes. They are probably 80+ years by now. Now some of you are going to fall of your chair in shock but I think I will go in there and find a gravy boat or creamer, sugar bowl--something and make a pincushion out of a couple and give one to my sister for her birthday and maybe the 2 granddaughters. Even a cup and saucer would be pretty. Why would I do that I am sure you are asking. Well I haven't used them in years, too much work--can't be put into dishwasher. Not hand washing dishes for 15 people. My daugher would never be bothered with using them so when I am gone they will probably go to goodwill or maybe they would sell them to an antique shop. Why not do something that others will enjoy? I just thought I also have some single cup teapots that were my gr aunts (grandma's sister) that might make a cute one too. My goodness you sure have my wheels turning. Not good when I am ready to go to bed. LOL

    WTG, another item to look out for when out looking.

    I love your pin cushion! I'm always looking for special things to make pin cushions out of. I've used tea cups, and I recently discovered that egg cups make really fun little ones - perfect to keep your needles in. Thanks for sharing! It's beautiful!
