Pin Cushion

After last weeks 'On the Shelf' theme over at My Place and Yours, hosted by Vic of Punky & Me, this week its 'My Pin Cushion'.
After one two many a times of locating lost pins in the carpet with the heel of my foot, I decided to make a pin cushion. Using the concept of making a fabric Yo-Yo, I then stuffed it and added a button.
Simple, but oh so effective in keeping those pins off the ground.

I used a piece of this thrifted fabric, with the cutest city print and a thrifted button too.

Come join in the fun here.


  1. Cute fabric! Much better then standing on them.

  2. Clever idea Zara. I like the thrifted fabric and that vintage button, looks great together. :)
