LESSology October Challenge #30

It is time for another challenge at LESSology. This month the challenge is titled Kitchen Raid. I found this strainer when I was cleaning out my mother-in-law's house. I knew I wanted to make it in to a pincushion.

First I cut some circles from muslin.

I turned that and filled it with some crushed walnut shells. It is lizard bedding.  Crushed walnut shells are suppose to be good to clean and sharpen you pins.

Next I sewed the little bag in the strainer.

Then the fun part. I added lace to the back and started embellishing.

I added this beautiful piece of tatting on the front. Then I added ribbon, and flowers. 

Now this is hanging in my work area,
and is ready for my pins!

Here is the video I made while I was working on this project.

I hope you will join the challenge at LESSology this month.
Thanks for stopping,
