A wooden blank painted white and black with a sponge, wrapped in Fantasy Film and heat-set. I had to line the inside because I burned a hole in the film trying to heat it with a candle where I couldn't use an iron. It's very iridescent.
Crochet pincushion by SkyWookiee, on Flickr These stars are my practice stuff from back when I learned to read patterns. I came up with an idea to use them right after the pincushion swap, but forgot about it. Then I saw one browsing Pinterest and finally here it is.
I made them for my mother's birthday (which was in November, that's how long I kept forgetting to take the pictures). I photoshopped digital scrapbooking graphics and a logo off her business cards onto a template, printed it out and mod podged onto cardboard.
