Objects old, vintage, hand made or upcyled, and old techniques with a modern twist

Since posting the Apple Pincushion Paperweight DIY on Sunday, I have been admiring the wide range of pincushion designs out there on the web. Here are a few of my favourites…

I spotted the stylish picture frame pincushions below on the Craftaholics Anonymous website. It’s a simple idea but an attractive, fresh take on the good old pincushion.

The sweet mouse below is featured as a free sewing pattern on the All About You website.

The super-cute crocheted cactus below is from PipAraPip, which includes a tutorial.

I love the owl pincushions below (from Quilt Magazine), it is such a simple but effective design.

The fluffy hedgehog below is from maker*land, where there is a full tutorial so you can make one of your very own!

How cute is this Hello Kitty pincushion from the Sew 4 Home website (shown below)?! I particularly like pincushions where the pins become part of the overall design (e.g. the whiskers on Kitty, and the pins are also integral to the cactus and hedgehog pincushion designs above).
