I was busy making a jar full of crafty whimsies for a friends birthday and saw this Tute Tuesday, by SuzNTX

I couldn't resist embellishing my jar just that little bit more by adding a pincushion, and pins, and... Cheesy







The paper bunting I made and posted here. It can be taken off and hung up over a picture or whatever.

I really need to keep up my meetings with Embellishments Anonymous Cheesy

Thanks! No, I can't take the credit for that design, I just cut it out. I really struck lucky that the design in the fabric was the perfect size for it!

Jars of whimsy are adorable normally, but you just pushed them to a whole new level. That fabric on the pincushion is perfect!

Hello! Thank you! Grin

It didn't take that long, surprisingly! It took longer to hold the fabric and ribbons down to let the glue dry than anything. I think that top flower trim came from your Mum, EdelC!! Cheesy

Don't even think about joining in with Embellishments Anonymous!  That's just a group for people obsessed with Bedazzling!   Grin

I think your friend will be absolutely delighted with her present!  I certainly would be!
