Cable Knit Pincushions

These beautiful old molds...

and this chunky, gorgeous, cotton cable knit sweater...

came together to make a beautiful pincushion!

I cut out a square of fabric.

and hand sewed it in a large circle, pulling the sting tight as I went.

When I got to the end I stuffed the circle with cotton balls.

and tied it tight.

Then I hot glued the stuffed fabric into the mold.

  And voila!

Adorable little pin cushions...

And... the rest of the sweater became a chunky, cozy, pillow cover.
