Since all of my Christmas crafting is officially done (hooray!) I decided to whip up a quick project for myself this afternoon.  Using a vintage calendar tea towel (from the 60s), I came up with this simple pincushion.  I think it's a big step up from the tomato that I've been using for ages!

Very cute, I like it! I have a vintage tea towel and that would be a good use of the fabric...

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

This is too cute.  Too bad I have no idea what a tea towel is.  Is it literally a towel you use during tea time?
