Did you use felt from the store, or did you needle felt it?  I love your embroidery, too!

Thank you! I just used regular acrylic craft felt from the store.

i love it......it kind of reminds me of a elven picnic on top of a mushroom no offence

Thanks! I actually take that as a compliment... I sort of have this "thing" for mushrooms (no, not the hallucinatory kind haha) and mushroom-related items, and a big interest in mycology.

I actually bought the polka-dotted felt with intentions to make mushroom pincushions but I thought it might work well for this too.

oh, this is the cutest thing ever! what size is it? i think shrinky price tags are a great idea. take more pictures if you do!

Let me see here... (ruler in hand)

The base of the pincushion is about 3 and 1/4" across and about 1 and 3/4" high. Including the miniatures, at it's tallest point (the wine bottle) it's about 5" tall.

Thank you for your compliments! I really have been meaning to make the shrinky dinks but I have a hard time following through with one project before wanting to start another one. I really should get on that though... considering her birthday was in early August. haha

Thank you everyone for your kind words and compliments! It really means a lot to me. This place has such a warm and inspiring atmosphere. Maybe now in the future I won't be so shy to post.  Smiley

That is the coolest pin cushion ever. If I made one for myself, that would be it.  Grin Maybe after the holidays (yeah, I know, it's only September, but I'm already thinking I'll be busy until Jan at least!).
