I'm not sure if this should be in this catergory or not but hey I got the pattern from the "Softies" book and it is stuffed so it MUST belong here:)
Anyways - I did get the pattern from the Softies book, but when I begun to make the pincushion I was looking for a ruler to measure and cut out the felt and couldn't find it.
My partner insisted that the ruler was "on the craft table somewhere" in fact - it was not anywhere on the craft table and we later found the ruler somewhere else completely (after I had cut out the felt with my own random measurements!).
But I still like the end product - it's for my friend Donna for her birthday - she's a very sophisticated kind of girl. Not a skull earrings and doc martins girl like me:) But she is a very crafty girl also so I hope she likes it!
