Restoring Vintage Pincushion Doll

This pincushion is my very first pincushion doll I gave a huge make over like 10 years ago. When they say one man's garbage other's treasury it's not a lie.

When I got this lovely pincushion girl it was at very bad shape. First I spray it with Mrs. Meyer's countertop spray which is very mild but degrase easily then wash it carefully with dish detergant  and rinse it.

After I air dried the figurine.  To make a new pincushion, first I sew an inner cover and filled with emery sand. It gives the figurine very nice weight. Then wrapped and sew with the coordinated reproduction fabric I choose from my collection. To decorate little more just added a lace trim and use navy color ribbon to make a bow at back.

Easy DIY Doll Eyes Tutorial with Felt circles



Felt fabric is great for all kind craft projects. It's made with recycled pet bottles, comes with bright colors and most important thing is not frays. It makes to sew this fabric or just use hot glue like a dream. If you check the doll eyes I made a few years ago you'll how basic felt circles add some characters to and dolls and toys.

For these felt doll eyes I used 2" wide white, 1" blue and 3/4" black felt circles. I just used some leftover blue and black DMC perle thread. You can use green, yellow even purple to make colorful eyes.
