Scrappy pin cushion

I had a sewin tonight and made my scrappy pincushion for the Flickr groups swap.
It is two sided.  I dug into my special scraps to make this.
I even added a needle holder.  I hate when pincushions don't have these.  And then the pins get lost in the cushion.
I also tried a little experimentation with some polymer clay and made some pin toppers!
They turned out better then I could hope. 
 Good enough to include three with the pincushion.
And I also rolled up some great scraps so my swap partner could make some more scrappy goodness.
I added a few vintage sewing supplies-a 10cent rick rack and spool of thread.
I may add a few more goodies before I mail this.

Keep dreaming...Colleen

A duck filled raffle basket that raised $45 for Relay last year.
Included a baby quilt, stuffed quilt, and lots of rubber ducks!

Pincushion and pin toppers are wonderful...

That's a great package. I have seen a how to on making the polymer toppers but thought it may be difficult. I love yours and am inspired to give it a try.

Love your pin toppers! Cute scraps used in the pincushion. How clever to add a roll of scraps with a scrappy project - filing that one away. What a treat this little package is going to be for the recipient.

Really great idea for the pincushion to add a needle holder:)
