I made this shabby chic pincushion from a vintage creamer and some fabric and ribbon scraps. It was such a simple craft to make and I just ♥love♥ the way it turned out!
There are just a few steps from start to finish so let's get started.
A few weeks ago I came across this craft in Romantic Country Magazine and have been wanting to make it ever since. This is a design by Dawn Edmonson at The Feathered Nest. Supplies:
I went to my favorite antique store and found the beautiful silver plated and monogrammed creamer and used that as my starting point but you could use any creamer, china, silver, etc.
A scrap piece of white broadcloth though I think you could totally change the look with some calico.
A small amount of Fiberfill
Now let's put this all together.
First, I first stuffed some tissue paper into the bottom of the creamer to fill it up almost to the top.
Now, cut a small square of white broadcloth, gather the edge with a gathering stitch, place a small amount of fiberfill in the center, pull the stitching tightly and knotted it off. This is your pincushion pouf.
Next, I hot glued some antique lace trim salvaged from a vintage table runner around the edge of the broadcloth pouf.
I then placed the pouf of fabric and lace into my creamer hot gluing it into place. I used a few of my favorite ribbons to make a simple bow, stitching it in the center and attaching some buttons I had saved from my Grandmother' s button box. I added some Dritz straight pins, a charm that I had on hand and some vintage hat pins and that was it!
