I have just finished creating some cute pincushions using vintage aluminum Jell-o pudding cups! i have used some wonderful fabrics rescued from upholstry sample books that were headed to the dust bin. I topped them with vintage buttons and weighted the bottoms of the cups so they would be extra stable. I am trying to get stock made for Christmas sales. I have just listed all three of these pincushions in my ETSY shop and you can see them all here! I think that they will make the perfect little gift for the crafter who loves to stitch and who loves vintage items.!!
They were also a lot of fun to make! I have quite a few of these little cups so I am planning on creating a few more!!
As the saying goes, "There is always room for Jell-O!!"
In the process of the never ending clean-up, I have unearthed some wonderful blue fabrics, so look for some more pincushions coming soon!!
