I'm posting Raggedy Ann today, (Tuesday instead of Wednesday) because tomorrow is Fairy day!
What does Raggedy Ann have to do with a 2 inch, covered, little jar? I CAN envision something.......hummmm,
might be getting a little complicated now.

Stripes, glass and felt,

a little lace and those things could take shape.

a clever way to stick glue while giving it time to dry.

Aw, she is a pincushion with heart straight pins. My very first pincushion!

The container can hold the pins while the stitcher is not working. Lid off while working-pins in use, meanwhile the container can be used as a thread catcher. Notice I made Ann's ribbon long enough to tie a set of small snippet scissors?
I need to study her to figure out Andy, I'm stumped as to what to do about a sailor cap. Too bad I couldn't be creative with a thimble!

That might not be as funny as it sounds. C&G Design

What an ingenious idea. Where in the world do you come up with such clever ideas?
Ann is quite the lovely & useful lady.

AWWWWWWWWW, very cute.

Are you guys coming down for the 4th? Sarah, Josh and I went to NH Sunday. Got a good haul.

CUUUUUUUUUUUUUTE! You are inspiring!

Kathleen said...

Fabulous idea. I am so not creative right now, I am jealous. Rain, rain...hugs, Kathleen

Hi Dawn! I've been busy once again and am catching up. I love, love, love that pincushion!! How freakin creative you are! You should have your own shop somewhere selling your wears! And, of COURSE an Ann pincushion makes so much sense for YOU! I smiled widely when I saw it! You know I like making pincushions...you've see some of them on my blog. I have been thinking a lot about making some more lately. I just might try the jar type...it's a great idea. How's your garden doing with all this rain? Are ya sick of it yet? We all are....maybe sun tomorrow...thank God! Talk to you soon my friend.

That's a great idea! Always in need of practical solutions to use up "junk", right?
