Pinstripes Turned Pin Cushion

I was just about to toss this pinstriped Old Navy button down shirt that has seen better days.  Then I remembered an issue of Martha Stewart Living where they used an old men's shirt to make a bunny, Xmas stocking, etc.  So instead of adding it to the donation pile, I decided to make this cute, little pin cushion:
I hand-stamped some starfish onto the fabric to give it a beachy feel.  Then, I added it to this vintage cup.
Another view.  And that is authentic beach glass, hand-plucked by myself, the hubby and two boys right from the good ol' beaches of Long Island!  =)

I have a lot left over shirt and I'm trying to decide what to use it for next!

Free fabric! That came out cute. That would look nice as placemats, too, with the stamps on them.
