Before and After

I found this sweet little china sugar bowl on my last antique shopping trip in Milledgeville. Something about it spoke to me and I added it to my list of finds that day. It wasn't until I got it home and placed it on my sewing table that I got my idea.

I found some cute matching floral fabric in my stash and made a really different pincushion out of it. it is only 4 inches long handle to handle. I placed it up for sale in our Birds Shoppe. I am going to find it hard to part with. I will just have to find some other cute china pieces to make these with.

Here are some of the embellishments. One of Mom's crocheted flowers, some vintage buttons and a brass bird charm.



What a fabulous find, you've got some skills in the hunting department. Nope no changes in email, still the same.

Just "sew sweet". It turned out adorable. I'll be keeping my eye out for some cute pieces for you, also. Happy Easter from Mom (MiMi)
