Most of the pincushions seem to be posted in here. So here goes. I made two pincushions recently.

One I made from a small (about 7 1/2 inches tall) tin chair that was a candleholder. I made the seat part into the cushion.

The other one I made from a terracotta basket I had. The basket is about 4 inches across and 3 1/2 inches high. I thought it looked like a picnic basket, so I used yellow and white gingham to simulate a picnic blanket.




C & C welcome!

Those are wonderful.  How creative.  I especially love the chair.  I didn't realize it was miniature until you said it.  I thought you made a giant one! lol

Thanks for the compliments everyone! The chair only stands about 7 inches tall if anyone was wondering.
