Item details

I love make-dos! Taking something old and no longer useful and turning it into something new and functional is good for the soul. I found this vintage brass bird votive holder missing the glass insert. Using a bit of a shrunken wool sweater--a serendipitous accident-- and some leftover pieces of wool felt, I fashioned a pincushion with hydrangea accents and a leaf needle holder. The pincushion part is blue; the flower accents two shades of purple sewn on with pearl beads, and the leaf is a lovely sage-y green.

Measures 3 1/2" (8.9 cm) wide and approximately 3 1/4" ( 8.3 cm) tall. Firmly stuffed with polyfil.
