An Idea in the Making....

Hi everyone! i hope you are all well and happy. i met with some of the people who are doing stalls at the craft fair...i was a little bit nervous about it, but it went really well. I'm very happy that i decided to organise this craft fair. i hope this one goes well because if it does I'm going to try and do them every 2 months!!
i keep seeing these gorgeous pin cushions in vintage cups and saucers, and i have been thinking about making them for a few weeks now. anyway whilst having a browse in a charity shop the other day i came across a cute little bowl for 50p and thought it was a good opportunity to have a go at these pin cushions. i had a go before i met the lovely ladies of the craft fair. what do you think?

id say i would give it an 8 out of 10. i think the fabric i used is a bit too heavy so whenever i take a pin out it lifts out of the bowl. perhaps i could glue it in? or maybe use a thinner fabric so that the pins come out easier? any suggestions? (how cute is the little bowl!!) hehehehe i just realised that if this works i can buy more pretties form the charity shops and not have to worry about where i can put them!! GENIUS!!

Right then....I'm off. i need to go and find some info about buses to cirencester. the flyers are ready for the craft fair and Ive been told there are some crafty shops there that would probably take some! (also Ive been told the charity shops are good there too!!!)

Speak to you tommorow!!



  1. I think they work pretty well, I'm not sure what the answer is about stopping it pulling out, although maybe try the finer fabric.
    Glad to hear your plans for the craft fair are going well.
    Take care.

  2. Glad the trip to cirencester wnet well and make sure you take your stuff to that shop on your next trip.
