  • Step 1

    If you come across a beautiful vintage planter, you can upcycle it into something unique. You can make it into a really beautiful pincushion. I love using a velveteen or stretch velvet to give it an upscale look but you can also use other types of fabric. It doesn’t take much supplies so it’s also a great way to use scraps. Why have a boring tomato pincushion when you can have something like this to treasure and it also makes a great gift for any sew-er in your life. Feeling inspired? You can also use this same concept to convert candle holders and teacups.
