it might have been a pain to sew, but boy was it worth it!
You got that right!  Grin 

Every time I see posts about that pincushion, I look to my left, smile at it and some times just stroke the velvet.  Erm.  Sorry if that's TMI.  *blush* But I do love that pincushion! 

*chuckles* Now here's a mental image for ya Wink

Oh my goodness!!  That is TOO funny!   Cheesy

Oh, I've been looking for somewhere to jump in and participate and I think this is it! I got all inspired and have already cut out enough pieces for two of them.

Hopefully I'll be ready to show off a photo of at least one tomorrow! Smiley

I am so in love with these!

OK all, so I got curious about issues of scale, and made a larger one using the twice as long as wide ratio (pieces on this one are 2 inches wide and 4 inches tall....result is cute but a bit different as newly found holes develop...(see pics)
Do you think a different ratio could make a large one like a small one? Or would I be spinning my wheels to try it...also any suggestions???

Big and little for size comparison:

I would increase the width to 2.5 or maybe even 3inches. You have gaps b/c the lengthier you go, the greater the gap bewteen the width and length. Like instead of a 1inch gap with the 2:1 ratio you now have 2in gap with 4:2, so you need to increase the width to reduce gaps appearing(don't you just love math?).
 I did my puzzle(see page 6) slightly larger than the original too and i used 3inches x 1.5 wide, but i think having 1.5 inch gap is the farthest away you wanna go between the width and length.

Then again, if you go a bit larger, it'd make a good toy for a baby/toddler...minus the buttons of course

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

Odd that you mention that, my toddler is three, so buttons are OK, anyway, he claimed the bigger one and spent like an hour under the coffee table with it.  I believe the primary function of the ball during this time was a cage for small action figures who were trying to not be eaten by a plastic shark....
Maybe the gaps are good :-)  LOL.
