I made my OWS 42 partner a mammoth pincushion; of course now she doesn't want to stick pins in him. Cheesy  He is handsewn, made of fleece and felt, and has weighted feet so he stays upright.  He was so fun to make (even if his butt is a bit bubbly; I'm pretty sure mammoths had bubble butts  Cheesy Wink Grin).

Yeah!!! Bubble butts.  I couldn't stick pins in him either.  You did too good of a job making him precious, i guess.

Consider yourself Wisted.

Tail and tuft of hair are just too damned cute.  Did you just use embroidery floss for that?

Adorable!! This is one of my favorite "pin cushions" ever. Not sure I could stick him either, but I love love love him!! The hair is great, and I love your idea for this tail. That's so much easier then having to try and turn a small little tail right-side out. I'll have to pirate your idea. =)

That's adorable! I don't think I could use him as a pin cushion either. Smiley
