I read your post at lunch and it's such an unusual idea that Ive been mulling it over at work the rest of the day. What about making a sort of egg-shaped pincushion out of fabric and then adding the ridged by gluing on a beige colored yarn in sort of squiggly patterns? just a thought! Kat
I'm so glad you did this. I was going to do the same thing but got frustrated with the getting the width right and the guage, that I gave up. Yours is wonderful. It makes me want to give it another go.
