with the purchase of my first sewing machine, i realized that i needed a pincushion.  randomly thinking about horror movies one day, i came up with an idea.  i googled it to see if anyone had done it before, and i didnt find anything.  i cant have been the first person to think of this...can i?

anyways...without further adeau:

Cutesy little Pinhead Pincushion!




isn't he adorable?  the boyfriend says that i should give him a mouth and nose...i dunno tho...what do you guys think?  would he look better with a mouth and nose?

Oh! This is brilliant! Don't add anything else, because it's the simplicity of it that makes it so adorable. Plus, it's like an obscure halloween costume. If someone gets it, then the are 100+ cooler than those who don't.

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.

LOL! Love it!

I had the great pleasure of meeting Mr. Doug Bradley in person. He was so cool...and whispered in my ear one of the more well known quotes... 'he is in his own hell now child, and quite unreachable'... gave me goosebumps!

How cute!  You don't need to do anything else to it, I don't think!  

I made one last year and I thought the same thing when I searched for it.  I can't believe there aren't more of these around.  Mine is a tad more disturbing and I ran out of silver pins pretty quickly...It won't let me post a pic because I am new but I uploaded a photo and here is a link if you want to check out mine:)

Oh GOD. I love it. LOVE. It.

Such a good idea! How creative of you, seriously. I'm a major horror movie freak... and I think he's perfect the way he is. Somehow the lack of a nose and mouth adds to the effect of the pins.

Hitting "this rocks," of course.  Wink

Looking at the mess of pins on my table, I think I need one of these too! Let's hope I can come up with something half as imaginative.
