Hi guys! I am back with another vintage craft to share with you all today! This one comes from a vintage 1954 August issue of The Workbasket Magazine. There was a pattern for a cactus pin cushion made from felt. I thought it was so cute, I just had to give it a try!
Here’s the original how-to:
I had a blast making this little pin cushion! It was really pretty easy. You don’t even need a sewing machine, everything is sewn by hand. I used a gingham fabric scrap for the pot portion instead of the felt like in the original, and I used a cereal box for the cardboard piece. Other than that everything else is by the original way. I think it looks super cute with or without the little pins. It was super fun to make and really inexpensive. I think it would make a great little gift for a craft friend! I hope you all will give this one a try sometime! I’ll be back soon with another vintage craft. Until then…
