Stick a pin in it


dressform pincushion

My friend Eryn sent me this fantastic  pattern a while ago for a dressform pincushion, by The DIY Dish. (You can get the patt free there too!) So cute! I didn’t have the right kind of candlestick on hand to use for it, so when my mum and I went thrifting this weekend, I scored the perfect one, and  for just $1! Today after work I got busy and whipped up this funky  chick to sit on my sewing table.

I love it! It was really easy to make and I had fun adding a few extra dangly charms- like some tiny scissors I bought online from Art Chix Studios. I added some extra faux crystals to the base too (since it was missing 3), which I just pulled some off a string of them I’ve been toting around for years that I got originally from the Christmas decor section at Ikea!

Cheap and cheerful, that’s how I like it. Go make one, you know you wanna! Winkwink!

    OMG that is so awesome. I’m also very impressed that you have room on your sewing table for decor! Nice job.

    This is fabulous!! And that is why I keep sending you links… I know you’ll make them and I won’t have to! Well, maybe since you did one, I’ll break down and make one too.
