Pincushion Challenge Aug-Sept

I bought a shirt at Goodwill long ago, because I loved the material...very retro. The Pincushion Challenge for August and September was to recycle something into a pincushion.

I cut off the cuff of a sleeve of that shirt, then sewed up the hole. I then made a little pincushion out of muslin and slipped it inside the cuff through the button side. Buttoned up the buttons and, voila!

I actually think this would look great as a big pillow!

I saw the pincushion challenge and thought I might be able to give it a try, but now the deadline is near and I don't think it's going to happen. You did a great job and it's got to be one of the more creative entries.
