Up-cycled Pin cushions

Little depression glass and antique pressed glass containers made the perfect base for these charming pin cushions. The green oval dishes are actually individual nut dishes or salt dips in the English Hobnail pattern which was produced from the 1920's to the 1940's while the round container is an even older piece of pressed glass from the late 1800's. Fabric from vintage sheets was stuffed with some cotton batting and hot-glued into place.

I now have to take a closer look through my china cabinets to see what else might provide the perfect bases for more pin cushions.....
