A Nest For My Needles

Ok, so I had this tomato pin cushion thing that came with my sewing kit.
The same kind that my grandmother used
and I played with as a kid.

Then....I saw the cutest idea at
The Shabby Chic Cottage.
Gina made a sweet pin cushion using a votive holder.
Ah, inspiration!

I had some supplies including a little nest that I thought would work perfectly.

So, I got to stitchin'
(don't look closely at that part
'cause the underside ain't pretty).

Some help from Glouise
and voila!


  1. Oooh love it! The polka dot fabric was really a great choice!


  2. that is so stinkin' cute! love it!!

  3. this is so darling!!! I think I might have to make one!!!

  4. Too cute! And what a great idea! I love the fabric you used!


    Meet Virginia!
    Meet Virginia!
    Meet Virginia!

  5. that is all kinds of darling!!!

  6. This is so cute! I commented a moment ago to say that I recently saw some robin's egg fabric that I loved, but that seemed too pretty to purchase without a purpose in mind and that this might be it. Your circles fabric is also very sweet. I think I navigated away before posting, but apologies if this is a duplicate. Still not super with it this morning.
