Vintage Scrap Pin Cushion

This is the maxi pin cushion I made using scraps that I bought as part of a huge bag of scraps from the 1960's and 1970's.

The bottom is a knit fabric and Iused a blanket stitch on the bottom. there is felt and stuffing in the pin cushions and it makes me happy to look at it.

no pattern used.

first patchwork!

I found your blog via Sew Retro. This is a really cute idea for using up scrap fabrics. I love the colours, they go really well.

That is the most adorable pin cushion ever. Where did you find the vintage scraps for it?
