Until today, all of my sewing pins were stored away in -- wait for it -- a sandwich baggy. Yes, I was keeping my pins in the worst place possible to keep pins. I bought a whole butt load of felt today, so I decided it was time to make a pin cushion.
I was thinking of making a plain tomato pin cushion, or possibly a strawberry pin cushion.. But I thought of this instead. I think it's pretty cute. But I'm biased of course.
I made the "terracotta" pot out of felt also and surrounded the "cactus" with rocks I found in the yard.
I hand sewed the whole thing, as you can tell. The stitches are totally visible, but that's okay.
It looks like it's waving! I think I'll make some of these as gifts for my sewing friends and family in the future. Hooray!
