Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: What Have You Got To Lose?
A friend recently asked me if I could come up with a way to display a collection of antique gold stickpins. Of course I was up for the challenge! I did some searching on Pinterest and saw a bunch of ideas - displaying them in pincushions that were placed in teacups or antique shoes. They all looked pretty and, at the same time, I was drawn to creating something a bit more simple to keep the focus on the beauty of the pins. I figured my first step was to learn how to make a pin cushion! So, I watched a great instructional video on YouTube and gave my first pin cushion a try using simple muslin and embroidery floss. So here it is...my first pin cushion! It is going to sit on my craft table and hold a few pins and needles...and remind me that it's worth giving something new a try...because after all, what have you got to lose?
Stop by tomorrow and I'll show you my completed stick pin display!
