Pincushions and Dress Forms

Well, here are the pincushions and dress forms that I made to sell at the fair.  I got my leftovers back today as the fair was over yesterday.  I only sold 5 pillows, 4 pincushions and 3 dress forms, and a few other smaller items.  My cards were not in a good spot, so no one saw them, but it was fun to be involved that way at the fair.  This was my first time making crafts and putting them in the country store at the Clark County Fair.    Most of these items I picked up today will be listed in my Etsy shop. 
This French pincushion was made to fit an old individual jello mold.  Sold!
Here is my creation done to look like a cupcake.  I used parts of an old sweater for the cupcake paper.
This one was is English country style, with plaid ruffled ribbon, and put into a "Royal Albert" Teacup.  Sold!
I love finding different containers to put pincushions in.
Another English styled one in another of the same Royal Albert Teacup.  Sold!
Here is a French toile fabric in a little silver dish.  I took this one out of my etsy shop.  Sold
And I got busy making some more of these little dress forms.  I love the vintage images I have found to place in the card holder part of it!

I used two pictures of my Mother doing some modeling in the early 60's.  Wasn't she beautiful?

Here is one for a new bride.

All very very very nice work. Looks like the type of thing I would come up with. Bet you don't use patterns and never make the same thing more than once. Thankyou for sharing, I really enjoyed visiting.

I love your pincushions! The teacup ones are my favorite and I see they sold, too! I guess they are a big favorite for a lot of people.

Your pincushions are darling, I am sure they will all fly out of your etsy shop.
