Vintage Trailer Pincushion

Hello! This month on her blog Eileen Hull is featuring unique ways to use her dies. The team is getting pretty creative for this one! Be sure to check out what they are doing all month long. For one of my projects, I converted the Trailer Box die into a pincushion.

Unfortunately all my step photos went AWOL, but this wasn't hard to do. I constructed my trailer normally but I cut the flat top section out before I assembled it. I cut a small rectangle of fabric a bit bigger than the opening in the top and hot glued it in place (from the inside). I padded it with a bit of batting and then filled the whole trailer with rice. The trailer doesn't normally have a bottom so I cut a piece of scrap matboard to fit and hot glued it in place to seal it all up.

Stay tuned for another unique die use project later in the month. In the meantime, be sure to check out what the rest of the Inspiration Team is up to. You won't be sorry! ;-)
