Be My Guest: Cupcakes and Crinoline

Happy Monday friends. I’m back but of course, so behind on so many things. So while I unpack, read through hundreds of emails and work on some projects, I’ll let the sweet Mary Beth of Cupcakes and Crinoline share her beautiful Vintage Pin Cushion.



Hello sweet friends of Carolyn and her inspiring Homework. I am so excited to be here today. Carolyn is one of my favorite bloggers and I always find myself oohing and aahing over her lovely creations and beautiful photography. For those of you who don't know me {and that's probably most of you!}, I'm Mary Beth, the author of Cupcakes and Crinoline where I share recipes, crafts, my love of vintage style and easy, small DIY projects. Today I wanted to share one of my favorite oh-so-easy to make vintage crafts with you~ this Vintage Pin Cushion.

Sew and Tell: pin cushion gift box

I made this cute fabric covered gift box. The inspiration came from a craft on The Better Homes and Garden Handmade Christmas Gift site.

It’s a gift package pincushion. BHG used a foam square and wrapped it in fabric and ribbon. I made mine with a small sturdy gift box stuffed with fiber fill and topped with quilt batting. Then I wrapped the box in fabric and added the ribbon.

Either way, the pincushion is a perfect crafty gift for someone who sews.

Sew and Tell: home ec and my tomato pincushion

I’ve had the same tomato pincushion since high school home ec - which by the way, is no longer taught at my high school. The home ec room was turned into a computer lab some time ago. I can count myself as one of the lucky few who left high school knowing how to make a wrap skirt and a tote bag.

Anyway, I was way overdue for a new pincushion. Here it is...or here they are.


I used 100% grey wool, sewed the edges in a blanket stitch and added a button.

I hope my home ec teacher approves.
