PIN-IT! BLOG HOP - - -TODAY!



Today is the start of of the Pin-It! Blog Hop........those who have a love of pincushions are sharing our creations. Some simple (like mine) and I am sure there will be over achievers galore! I can't wait to go and look!

Thanks to Mdm Samm and our cheerleader Kristen @ Meadowbrook for hosting such a fun hop!

I am been overloaded with activity so my contribution is simple, multiple, quick & easy and I really like them!

I started with some tea light holders that got ruined while I removed the price tags....who knew the color was painted on and not in the glass? Really? 
You burn things in them..hheeellooooooooo



I picked some cute fabrics and made little balls of fiberfill and glued away.....regular glue, not hot and this is what I got.................






I used linen and free-handed some embroidery.....a 1.5" circle is all I had to work with



The whole kit and kaboodle!


Go and visit all the other hoppers....I am sure you will be totally delighted with their creations!  I'm going now!

  45. Those are so cute. I have many little tea light holders, too many to put out at once for candles. I can turn some into pin cushions too. Thanks for sharing. ANd I also remembered that I wanted to make some of those star trek bunnies for my little nephew. His parents love anything star trek!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Those tea light holders are cute and made even cuter with the pincushion centers! I have some of that ladybug fabric...don't you love it when you see fabric you have that somebody else has too? Sweet embroidery too.

    ReplyDelete
  48. What a great idea! I see some of my favorite fabrics in your samples, and they make me smile, too! Maybe that tealight accident was meant to be...

  64. Love the repurposed tea light holders. What a great idea. And yes I thought the color would be in the glass also. But now they are much prettier as pin cushions.
    Happy quilting,

  67. What a great way to repurpose something that could have easily been thrown away. They are adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I'm glad to see that you made the tea lights into adorable pin cushions. I'd probably have put them aside (I'd have kept them and put them some where to take up space). I don't have any idea what your original intent was for the tea lights but they are absolutely adorable. I could certainly use one for my couple of pins (yes, I use two pins) as I sew hexies together. I am sewing a Grandmother's Flower Garden with 1" finished pieces. I use traditional piecing methods and I use a pin at each end and then take one out at a time. So, one of these would be perfect for this project. Thanks for participating and sharing your amazing creativity. I hope to see you in more hops very soon.

  69. Love your pincushions. Where did you find the tea lights? These would be perfect gifts for a quilt retreat I am going to in a few weeks.

  83. Hi Regena I have had this with coloured glass as well, especially if you wash them in the dishwasher. But what a great use for them they look great. Susie x

    ReplyDelete
  84. Those are so cute. While stupid, it is probably cheaper to use clear glass and color them after they cool.

    ReplyDelete
