Vintage Baby Shoe Pin Cushion

Because I like lots of pins and needles on hand, I made the opening of this
baby shoe to the fullest. I had a children's pink toile fabric for the pin cushion and used
poly fabric fill for pillows.
Dawn's blog, The Feathered Nest, has a tutorial for these precious little baby shoe pin
cushions. They are fairly easy to make and require very few supplies to make. A vintage baby shoe,
fabric, and your choice of embellishments. Use your imagination!
I love all the 'vignettes' on this fabric. Children playing are a sweet
image.
I used xtra long stick pins and glued pink crystals and glass heart pearls
to the pins. My choice of glue is a glass to metal type so they are forever bonded.
