Handmade Christmas: Pin Cushion

I made this awhile back without knowing who it would go to. I gave away pincushions to almost everybody I know who sews, so this one has been waiting for a new sewer to emerge. Since my friend Anja took up sewing this year I thought, Aha!

The base is a twig nest (from a craft store). The cushion is fabric and fiberfill (attached with glue to the base), with two stacked buttons sewn in the center. The foam/feather bird is leftover from my wedding decorations (also available at craft stores), and the six straight pins are made from polymer clay, with a little bit of felt for the nests.
