Tiny Tart Tin Pincushions by Kerry Lynn Yeary

when i received my packet of the new jbs be our guest release and the project foundations my heart skipped a beat when i saw these vintage inspired round tart tins. i knew instantly hat i wanted to create a few pin cushions with them with some scraps of a vintage cutter quilt that i had been hoarding.

to start i cut a round piece of the quilt and then stuffed it into a circle over a wadded up piece of old batting. i stitched along the edges, which are hidden underneath {inside the tart tin} to form a nice tight ball. then i used hot glue to attach the quilt ball into the tart tins.

after putting it all together i hand-stitched along the quilt seams to add some dimension and then added a little hand-stitched heart to one as well. the pins are a mix of handmade, the paper hearts and flag pins as well as some jbs garnet rhinestone stick pins.

happy tuesday!
Pin It!

  1. I love those old tin tarts. I have made a few of the pin cushions with them for my sewing room but never thought of using them in my scrapbooking room for Jenni's pins. I need to make me one for that space. Neat idea...Thanks for sharing.
