A pincushion from a powder puff-redo

I love to go to estate sales. I picked up this pink powder-filled puff last week. I thought it would be a quicky remake but it took some extra time to turn it into a pincushion.

I covered the puff with pink velvet and had to add more stuffing to get it to fill out nicely. It then took longer because I had to get a spherical shape with stitches and moving the filling around with a long needle.

I covered the handle with more pink velvet and added a silk ribbon flower and leaves on top.
