Mannequin (pin cushion)



I finally got around to sewing these beautiful mannequins! They're supposed to be pin cushions but these are just to look pretty in my girls rooms. They're so easy to make with only a fat quarter, candle stick , button and mini ornament. There's a wonderful video tutorial here. I made mine from candlesticks that were my husband's grandmothers. She was my dear friend and always had these candlesticks sitting on her kitchen table. I spray painted them to match the girl's rooms. The buttons are also from her collection. Now my little ladies will have a gift made by mom but full of memories of great-grandmother.

Tammy, these are beautiful. I will be making these, or at least 1 for my mom, they will look so cute in her sewing room. I wish I had time to do it before Christmas, she is the seamstress in the family so she would really appreciate this. I'll shoot for Mother's Day, thanks for posting!
