Hello! This is my first real post on craftster... I'm a long time lurker though. I've been sort of shy to post!

This is a gift I made for a friend of mine for her birthday. Basically all she eats is baguettes and various cheeses and also loves wine so I decided this would be a suiting theme. She also told me she was in need of a pincushion so I guess that's how it all came together!


This is a close-up...


(Excuse the funny backgrounds...my camera is sort of poor-quality and I have to work with the only natural light I can get which is outside...my house is so dark!)


The whole thing.

Basically I just made up patterns as I went along. Everything is made out of felt and stuffed with poly-fill so it's all is "pin-stickable", haha.

I'm thinking of making some shrinky dink pins to go in the top that look like price signs.

Oh, that really is cute!  Did you use felt from the store, or did you needle felt it?  I love your embroidery, too!
