Baby Shoe Pincushion

A few months ago I bought a set of vintage baby shoes at my Thrift Store.  They were dirty and scuffed, so no one wanted them.    I decided to give one a new life as a Pincushion.   I painted the shoe a mauve color.  Then I made a flowered pincushion and put it in the shoe.  Finally, I added a vintage-style timepiece charm, tiny peach roses and seam binding.

This was so much fun, I think I'll be on the lookout for other "unwanted" shoes.   There are many females in my family and I think they make useful gifts.
