Older Pincushions

A few years ago a friend showed me how to make pincushions using old bottles, jars, eye cups, egg cups, etc. and as I still have a couple of them here, I thought I'd post a photo. They're both done with old white glass jars, probably used for creams of some kind, and then some nice fabric for the cushion part and some trim to cover where the cushion meets the top of the jar...and then lots and lots of beaded fringe along the edge...they took a lot longer than the bottlecap ones though!

At first glance, I thought they were beaded headpieces!! LOL.
