Crafty Ribbons Pin Cushion!

Good morning everyone! Hope you are well :-) Here I am with something a little bit different I made using Crafty Ribbons Knit and Sew ribbon, Lace and scraps of material.
I started with a plain hinged box. I covered the lid in many layers of cotton batting. I then covered this and the pot with the scrap of material. I then added the ribbon and lace to finish! A pin cushion which opens to hold pins inside! :-)
While I am here the winner of my candy from the blog hop was 39:Happy Crafter Shell so please contact me on the email on the sidebar :-)

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs
