Pincushion - a la Samster Mommy

If you're anything like me, you get inspired by all of the craft blogs and projects out there, floating around the web. I keep both e-files and paper files FULL of projects I see and like - they sit in piles in my craft room just waiting for a rainy day...

... like today!

It's a cool, rainy summer evening - a perfect night for crafting. I pulled out THIS TUTORIAL by Natasha at Samster Mommy for a keepsake pincushion box. A super-cute, quick, easy, eco-friendly idea to make your own pincushion out of an old jewelry box.

The only thing I did differently was to cover the bottom of my box as well - I didn't like the color, and the box didn't have sentimental value to me.

It's going to look so cute next to the sewing machine I'm hoping is coming my way on my birthday in a little over a month... nudge, nudge, wink, wink!!!

Thanks Natasha, and all of you other wonderful crafty ladies (and gents!) out there - for sharing your talents and ideas!

That looks really cute. Perfect for keeping a little sewing kit in.

Thanks ladies! Yes - you can keep all kinds of little sewing doodads in the bottom of it!
