Antique Puncushion

Last week when I was up in Midway, Utah for The Small Town Quilt Show, I found this cute antique thingy ma-bober at a gift shop. 

I was shopping with friends and we thought it would make a super cute pincushion. 

I added the fabric, crushed walnut shells and batting to make this cute thing into a pincushion ;-)

I used a circle of plastic cardboard to hold all of the "stuff" up in the lid. ...and then shoved a few t pins in to hold it all together ;-)

TA da!!!  Cute as cute can be :-)


  1. Now that is what I call a fine example of up-cycling! What a super idea!

  2. What a great way to repurpose your antique thingamabob! Love it!!
