Salad Bowl Pincushion
Like most crafters, I love a re-purposed cast-off. I picked up a stack of 70s-era wooden salad bowls from a garage sale last summer. I knew I would do something craft-ish with them, but I wasn't sure what.
Then, inspiration: A pincushion! A big hefty one! The Mother of All Pincushions!
Today I got out one of the salad bowls, and in less than an hour, I have the best pincushion ever- large pinning surface, substantial enough to stay put while removing pins, cool looking (I think), and I used stuff I already had to make it. Wheee!
