Vintage Linen and Tiny Bowl Pin Cushions

This past summer, I found a small collection of tiny glass bowls at various estate sales.  I think they use to be little salt or sugar bowls because they came with tiny spoons.  When I spotted them at the estate sale, I immediately saw tiny pin cushions and that is what they have become.  

 It was a challenge to use the vintage linen with the birds.  I really like it but it had some pretty sizable holes so using them in a dressform pin cushion would not work.  I created this set...a tiny glass pin cushion and a larger one.  The red bowl is a purchase from Anthropologie.  This is one set of pin cushions I will be keeping for my own little collection!
 Here are some more pictures of the little glass pin cushions.  You can see I found two different size sugar/salt bowls. 

I also made a couple of pin cushions using the small vintage tart tins.  I will have these available for my upcoming craft fairs.  One of which is this Friday and Saturday at:

  1. I saw your these on Pinterest...they're very pretty! Love the touch of sparkle.

  2. These are so pretty. I have some tiny glass bowls too. Does the glue show through on the outside of the bowl? What kind of glue did you use?
