Vintage inspired pin cushion...


It's colour challenge time over on The Ribbon Girl Blog. This month the colours are vintage pinks and cream.
I needed a storage solution for all my pretty pins, somewhere to keep them within easy reach out on my workbench.  All the time they're tucked away in a box I forget to use them.  So, I found this quickie pin cushion tutorial HERE, it's the perfect solution for me and only took a couple of hours to make.  Who'd have thought it started life as a cocoa tin, it's amazing what a few metres of pretty lace can do.

Check out The Ribbon Girl blog for some beautiful cards and projects from The Ribbon Girls, entry details for this challenge, plus news of the fabulous new designers that'll be joining us next month.
