Easy DIY unique vintage retro sewing pin cushion

   So, my old tomato, or strawberry pin cushion, or whatever that was supposed to be...maybe a tomato with a tiny random strawberry dangling from it for no apparent reason...whatever, it's gone now. Totally missing, I can't find it anywhere. Either a desperate, senile old lady broke into my house and stole it, or it feel behind my sewing desk and I just don't feel like moving it out to check. Anyway, I got really tired of life without it and have gone far too long without it. In my own desperation I was actually using a rolled up pair of baby socks because it was the first thing I saw that would suffice. So as awesome as that's been, (not really) I finally decided to fix the situation and come up with some totally creative, blog worthy idea for a new pin cushion. Then I realized that writing an entire blog entry about a pin cushion is very unnecessary and that just by looking at the picture you can pretty much figure out how to create something similar on your own, but I WANTED TO BLOG! I haven't had a chance to sit down and blog in a really long time and you can probably see that my blog is fairly young and doesn't have very many posts but that's only because I don't get too many opportunities like this to focus on anything! (If you have children then you understand.) So, in order for this blog to necessitate the internet air space in which it takes up, here is the tiny tutorial for this not-so-blogworthy-but-blogging-about-it-anyway post...

   This can really work with any small container, I was lucky to have a small old Avon goblet such as this, but it could be done with anything that you can put a stuffed piece of fabric into. Which leads me to the stuffed piece of fabric. Stuff a piece of fabric with poly-fil or something like that and glue, sew or pin it together at the bottom and then place it in the glass, or whatever you choose to use. (I saw an idea with a glass shoe, cute!) I debated about gluing it in, but it really didn't need it so, Voila! Done! 

  Now I want to thank you for taking the time to read my long drawn out blabbery about a pin cushion! :) Thank You!
