Green With Envy

While I was cleaning out my kitchen cupboards two weeks ago, I found an awesome green planter that my Mother-In-Law left behind when they moved out.  It was in the cupboard under the sink, and it even still had some dirt in it!  I cleaned it all up, and this weekend I turned it into a pincushion.
All of the fabric is vintage.
I love the rosettes on the front.
And my emroidery on the top.

This little almost heart is my favorite part of the whole thing.
 Love that it's vintage.
This might be my new favorite!  I know, I say that every time I make a new pincushion, but I mean it every time!
