Vintage Spool Pin Cushion

I have a bunch of wooden spools in my collection and decided to make one into a pin cushion with the vintage material I just acquired. I simply cut a circle with pinking sheers, then used embroidery thread and made a running stitch. I stuffed it with fiberfill then pulled the thread tight, made a knot and it's done! I decorated it with a felted ball acorn and twine. Those are my fimo Sprout pins.

Isn't it cute?

Oh, I also started a new blog called Reinvintage. I'm posting vintage items that I've reinvented into something else. Like this spool!
