I made this little guy yesterday. He makes me so happy when I sew with him. This totally reminds me of Mr. Sunshine from the Care Bears. It came out a bit larger then I was planning but overall sewing with it is great!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

He's so cute!!  What did you stuff it with?  I've heard of stuffing pin cushions with with emery, but I cannot find any. I've also heard of them stuffed with steel wool.

The cushion is just about 4.5 inches in diameter...not too big but bigger then the norm.

I just filled him with polyfil (that is what I have always filled mine with and haven't had any issues) There is a small flat rock in the bottom to keep him steady and not fly all over my table.

I have read about the Emery to fill them but my pins never go dull. They always bend way before that.

Thanks for all the compliments. Glad everyone love it as much as I do Smiley
