Before I start, you GOTTTTTTTA check out my newest sponsor, Posh Patina. Cuz man oh man, she's got some superly duper gorgeous hand painted jewelry for... are you ready for this.... all between $5 and $10!!! Perfect for gifts or for yourself. Or both! And she has sale items too for $3 and $4.
So. Yo. If you're on Pinterest, how often do you pin stuff thinking you'll do it, but you know you probably never will? I try to only pin things I know I really want to try and this pin cushion was one of them! Aimee from Twigg Studios linked the original idea up on one of my early Trash 2 Treasure Tuesday link parties (What?! You don't party with us on Tuesdays? By George you better start!) and I loved it and pinned it. Pinning for pins. HAHA. I'm lame. You can view her's here, it's much more sophisticated looking than mine, but everything she does is much more sophisticated than what I do! That woman is one whirlwind of creativity and craftiness.
|Rummaging through my scraps of fabric, I found this.... and used a cool whip lid to draw a circle. And then I used some tree trimming shears to cut it out. Just kidding.|
|Sewed a stick around the outside...... uhhh stitch that is....|
|And pulled on one thread to pucker it up. Reminded me of Granny's night cap from Little Red Riding Hood. I read that story A LOT. Something about big bad wolves that kids just love. Because the other book I read A LOT is The Three Pigs.|
|I stuffed Granny's bonnet as full as I could.....|
|And tried stuffing all the stuffing inside. It didn't want to stay in there. I used hot glue to secure granny's cap to the inside of the dish and burnt my fingers a few times. Bad.|
|The kid's thought it was like a ton 'o fun to transfer all my pins from the old tomato pin cushion to the fancy new ice cream sundae one!|
