(I wasn't really sure where to post this project. If it is in the wrong forum, please move it. Smiley )

Hi, I'm troublet. I'm addicted to making pin cushions.

Hi troublet.

I found a tute yesterday morning for soda pop top pin cushions. Now, I have 5 with plans for more. LOL! These little numbers have made me remember just how much I enjoy hand sewing. Unfortunately, I'm not really sure what I'm going to do with these creations as none of my RL friends sew. Possible swap material? Dunno...

Anyways, here goes!

The pink cupcake was my first attempt. I was just beginning to wrap my brain around the concept and pattern. Then came the sunflower as I started playing around with the size and shape of the pop top. I might add some dark brown beading around the center to make it pop a bit more.

And, here comes the insanity which is leading to addiction.

I originally made the red 'shroom on a lark. My son pipes up saying "Oooo, mommy, make the green mushroom next!" so I did. After dinner, my husband says "All you need now is a goomba or your project won't be complete." I did and he was right. The goomba is my fav so far.
