The DIY Dish Mannequin Pincushion
The girls at DIY Dish created a cute dressform pincushion.
I just had to make one.
After digging through my stash and not coming up with any fabric I wanted to use, I printed my own. I scanned part of the instructions from an old pattern. I printed it onto Crafter's Image Photo Transfer Paper and cut out the pieces.
It was simple to sew. I added a thimble for the 'head' and cut up an old tape measure to dress up the waistline.
A candlestick from the thrift store is used for the base.
