Upcycled Vintage Linens into Dressforms Pincushions & Buttons

As mentioned in my post of June 21, 2011, creating these dress-form pincushions from vintage linens was a project I enjoyed very much.  This project took a life of it's own as I realized I could use every bit of these embroidered vintage linens.  The smaller scraps were given new life by creating small pin cushion using small tart tins and ceramic bowls with the edges covered with German silver glass glitter.  With the even smaller scraps, I was able to make fabric covered buttons of varying sizes.  This truly was an up-cycling project, where nothing was wasted.  Here are the pictures:
