Pincushion Jar

I finished the pincushion for the challenge...and made changes along the way.
The first selection of fabric didn't work out like I envisioned. So I went with this pink piece and... Yes... I had it on hand :) The blue print was too big and I wasn't feeling it.
I used the cushion with band of fabric for my lid, glued the earring on and made another cushion for inside the jar. Now pearl pins can be stored inside, separate from others. I really enjoyed working on this and watching it evolve because I only knew I wanted to use the jar.
So, How is everyone else doing?
I hope you are having a creative day!
see you again soon, susie

That is beautiful!
So many creative ideas in this challenge.
I love the way you did the lower one for the pearl pins and the earring gave it just the right touch!

I love the idea of two individual places to put your pins.. you could have glass pins in one spot and so so pins on top.. awesome idea!! Yes I think the pink and vintage ear-ring is just the right touch.. good job. Thank you for sharing with us :)
