♥ A {JustRite} Pin Cushion Jar ♥

Hi everyone!! I haven't forgotten about my Spring giveaway! Just been too busy to get it on here! But I will shortly! Promise!! ;)

 I have been wanting to make one of these pin cushion jars for ages! But as soon as I got my new Grandma's Attic Background Stamp by JustRite and then saw the current JustRite Friday challenge, Perfect Pastels,  I knew I just had to make this!


 Love this new Grandma's Attic Background Stamp! So sweet! Love the buttons, dress form and the cute little needle and thread along the bottom! (which I covered with some real thread and needle) It can be filled with buttons, spools of thread, it would even make a wonderful Mother's Day gift filled with old pictures in it!



The pin cushion is super easy to make! All I did was fill a little organza wedding favor bag with fiberfill, remove the string used to tie it closed, and then simply sew the opening shut with white thread. Instant pin cushion! I filled it with some handmade stick pins by the sweet Elise!


Come and join in on the fun over at the JustRite Inspiration Blog! Just love the current prize!!


Here is the JustRite inspiration photo!



Have a wonderful night!!
