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!
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:
