Truck Pincushion

I made this pincushion using a little metal truck that my grandson outgrew. I had seen something similar on Pinterest years ago, and wanted to try it. I did mine differently in that I dry felted some wool fleece and then glued it into the bed of the truck so it would stay put.

I also had some really long pins and needed either pins that were numbered or lettered for when I wanted to sew together rows of quilt blocks and keep them in order. I didn't have any numbered beads, so I used letters of the alphabet instead. I glued the alphabet beads to the pins and added a small glass bead below the letter bead. The top of the pin already had a glass pinhead to it.

Lots of photos below to show you all the angles. You can see this was a well played with truck too.







Happy pinning!

  1. Oh my gosh, Daryl! What could be better than a truck load of pins! This is SO clever and adorable. It will make you think of your Grandson always. Now I wish I hadn’t given my son all his childhood trucks and cars. Ha! Well, they were Matchbox...a bit too small and I don’t think there were any trucks with open backs anyway. I might have to go shopping in the toy department and buy myself a new toy truck! Really, this is such a clever idea.
