Earlier in the year my daughter and I went op-shopping and among many of the bargains I found was a packet of 4 wooden egg cups---you know the ones--you paint on them or collage on them.
Well I left them by accident in my daughters car and then forgot all about them.
Several weeks ago she dropped them off to me--they had gotten lost in her car.
I had decided to make them into pincushions.
I made a ruffle out of some lace off the edge of an old tablecloth---
Put some wadding inside the egg cup to fill the hole a bit-then I made a pillow out of an old doyley and glued them all together.
You can see the finished one in the photo down the bottom of the post.
I was at our church op-shop and found six white ceramic egg cups for $2 so I grabbed them as well--
This one has vintage lace on it---
And the cushion is covered with a piece of a vintage doyley-----and some pink flower motifs.
Here are 4 of them finished-----------
And a close up (the centre cushion is wool fabric with hand enbroidery)
