Pincushions Galore

I have been working on several Pincushion designs for the past week.  I have approached a local retail store who takes on consignment homemade crafts of all kinds.  I have other crafts I have been working on and will add them to my blog in the next little while.  All of the pincushions are hand sewn and then glued together with a hot glue gun. 

This shows a variety of what I have designed.  All the pincushions are hand sewn and I also used a glue gun to attach all the Stampin Up ribbon and buttons.  The front three pincushions were made from small clay pots from the dollar store. 
The above pincushions I used cat food cans.  I wrapped Stampin Up ribbon around the tin and then attached a bow to the front.

The containers for this pincushion are souffle dishes from the local dollar store.  Once again I gathered the material with a long basting stitch, pulled tightly.  Then I put hot glue into the bowl and pushed the stuffed fabric ball into the bowl.
