Yeah I know, nothing great about making pin cushions. And I am sure yours are lovely and beautiful not rudimentary looking as this one.
This is different in just one thing though. What do you think the base of this pin cushion is made of ?
Why plastic bottle of course !! A dash of paint on a cut plastic bottle, and I had a very stable base for the pumpkin cushion, that could now sit or stand firm on any surface.
