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.
