From pincushion to toy

I needed a pin cushion for a long time and last week I finally made one using the tutorial by UK Lass in US.

Apple Pincushion

Of course a day later it was abducted by my daughter to be used as a plaything, so I'll have to make another one for myself. There are so many to choose from:
- matching pear one from UK Lass in US
- yummy tomato one from Martha Stewart
- simple, yet cute toadstool, square or hexagon one from Kootoyo (she even has videos of how to make them)
- adorable tiny bottelcup one from Very Big Jen (check out the ones she made)

But I should remember do something really boring to avoid the upgrade of its pincushion status to the toy one.

I like the name of the new blog :) And the pincushion is cool - I totally understand how Katya found it so attractive :) PS: sorry to hear about your eye - hope you feel better now!

I am blown away by the woman who seems to have made a life's work of pincushions! And they are all just gorgeous! Yours is pretty cute, too.

I had the same problem - I couldn't keep the kids away from the apple and pear...
