This is both my first crafster contest and the first time I'm posting my own project. Here it is, my mini mushroom pincushion with inch worm! The mushroom head is made out of a bit of scrap fleece, and the spots are just some white scrap fabric that I sewed on. I like how the white ravelled a little bit when I sewed. The head is stuffed with just a tiny bit of polyester filling. The stem is a cork that I carved down. The little inch worm is made of home made play dough that I baked at a low temperature in the oven to dry it out before I painted it.
Here's a head on view.
And one showing the size. It's actually a bit smaller than it looks because of the angle of the camera.
And finally, it actually having pins in it.
The idea came to me because I had previously made a mini pincushion with a bottle cap. I found that tutorial here: http://www.craftstylish.com/item/945/how-to-make-pretty-pincushions
