Pincushion Challenge Aug-Sept Recycled Sleeve Cuff

I bought a shirt at Goodwill long ago, because I loved the material...very retro. The challenge 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! Oh-and the pinheads are made of Shrinky Dinks.

 

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