I bought some pretty little porcelain shoes some months back with the intention of turning them into pincushions ~ which I have finally done! I am so happy with the way they have turned out. I used my hot-glue gun for the first time when making these pincushions and I have to say that I have somewhat mixed feelings about the thing! There's no doubt that it sticks things together very quickly and efficiently, but I found it quite a messy process as the gun seems to drip rather a lot ~ plus I managed to burn my fingers a couple of times, too LOL
Two of the pincushions are going into my Folksy shop, one is to be a gift for a friend and the fourth will be a GIVEAWAY, which I will be posting about tomorrow!
