I recently participated in a pincushion swap on my blog & thought I'd share what I made - I only realised when I posted these pics on my blog that everything was repurposed!

This was made out of two cups from a matryoska measuring cup set - some of the set was melted so I thought using it for crafty good was the way to go, so that I could get another set guilt-free...





Two vintage eggcups:





And a bit of old blanket!



Thanks for looking - I hope maybe I have given you a couple of ideas if you ever find yourself in dire need of a pincushion... Wink

How very cute! I like the blanket one. And I LOVE the nesting doll one! I've never seen a set of measuring cups like that! You said you're getting yourself another set- would you mind sharing where you got them? I'd love to get myself a set too! I just adore them!

I love them all, but I am especially fond of the nesting doll. How cute and practical!
Great job on all of them.

Weird - I was just looking at those cups online last night! They're Urban Outfitters Smiley

I'm in Oz, got them on the evilbay lol, they were about $17-$18.

Thanks all - I wish I could have kept one of them, but I already have two spiffing pincushions in return, with another two to come!
