Pincushion Dip Bowl

Yesterday Karen from Sew Many Ways showed some clever ways to use a plastic lunch container. One of those containers had a hole in the middle and Karen put loose pins in the middle of her bowl. This is a thrift store find I recently bought that I was going to post as soon I took some photos. I commented to Karen that I just bought a similar bowl, but in ceramic and put a pincushion in the hole and other sewing tools in the space around the hole. So Karen as the saying goes, Great minds think alike.
My ceramic bowl find from a thrift store.

It was from Crate & Barrel originally.

A felted pincushion I made over a year ago fit just perfectly in the hole indentation. I guess it was meant to be.  I can place the presser feet and bobbins I am using in the space around the pincushion. I hot glued the pincushion in place to keep it from moving around as I use it.

Aerial view, lol.

Pin It Now!


  1. one can never have enough pin cushions. I love yours so cute and with the dish its a perfect combination. i hope you don't mind if i steal your idea next time i find a second hand chip and dip bowl.

  2. Hi Daryl:) Love the idea and so cute and love the plate color!! Have a great day!

  3. That dish would look great in my kitchen. Lovely idea.

  4. OMG, I love the idea, your pincushion is gorgeous! For me, it is a very practical idea, because often when I'm sewing I'm changing the foot of the machine and placing them all around, I have as well various accessories, scattered on the table! I hope you do not mind, I'm going to pin this project.
    Something I have to do, thanks for the inspiration!!!
    I love your pincushion so muuuch!!!
