Vintage Sugar Bowl Pin Cushion

by - 7:56 AM

Finally!  The sun is shining and the temperature is mild here today.  Woo hoo!  It instantly changes my mood and gets me back into crafting mode.  Last night I decided to turn this vintage sugar bowl into a pretty pin cushion.

I always seem to have a ton of fabric remnants floating around and this one reminds me of spring so I immediately grabbed it.  The sugar bowl is something my hubby found at an estate sale last year.  Last Easter I had it dressed up with faux Dollar Store moss and some eggs, but I decided to give it a more practical makeover since I'm always looking for my pins.
I used a plate to cut a fabric circle.  Then I started looping in my thread - leaving enough at the ends so I could pull it together to form my pin cushion.
Then I filled it with Polyfil and tied my two thread ends together to close it up.  A little hot glue around the bottom of the fabric and I'm good to go!  And since spring is on my mind (obviously!), I added a little spring bird tag.  This literally took me all of 10 minutes and now I have a sweet new place to stick my pins.
