Don’t throw that shoulder pad away… upcycle it into a wrist pin cushion!

I repurposed the material from a favorite floral dress but didn’t want to throw away the shoulder pads so I upcycled them into cute and useful wrist pin cushions!

Take the shoulder pad that you salvage from a blouse, dress, or jacket

Then cut a piece of recycled feed bag material or some other thin plastic that will fit in between the area that you will fold over. This plastic will help keep your wrist safe from pins being stuck into the pin cushion.

If your shoulder pads are not covered with pretty material, then make a cover to go over the plain white shoulder pads.

That is what I did here.
