My 3rd crochet project - everybody needs a donut shaped pin cushion!


The icing is made from lilac felt, and I put multicoloured tacking pins in the top to act as sprinkles


Thanks for looking

This is really cute! Did you create the pattern yourself, or did you find it somewhere? I'd love to make some of these.  Smiley

Cute! I agree that everyone should have a donut pincushion! I made a pink and brown felt one and every time someone asks for a straight pin, I just reply, "Sure, just check that donut."  Cheesy

Weave in ends.
To decorate Frosting, embroider scattered French knots or snip yarn into 1/4 in. (6 mm) lengths and glue to Frosting for sprinkles.
Glue Frosting to top of Doughnut. 

I found this pattern at www.lionbrand.com

on this pattern, the icing is crocheted, but I saw the crochet icing, and I thought felt looked better, but it's up to you really.

- thanks for all of the lovely comments, guys! [: much appreciated.
