A la verybigjen tutorial. I love everything about this design from the iris detail to the blanket stitch eyelashes to the ingenious eyelid shaping, I just think it's great! Ooky too, sticking pins in an eye, eww!

Here it is with it's pins

Make some! There's a great step by step photo tutorial on her flickr and it's very quick and easy.

This is to go along with a voodoo sock monkey I'm making for a friend in exchange for some shopping he did for me in the city. The pin cushion comes with a bunch of shrinky dink organs like heart, lungs, etc. I'll post pics when I get the monkey done, should be fun all together!

This is too cool! The details are fabulous. Plus I think it would be kinda cathartic to poke a needle in it Smiley. I must have one of my own!!

i love personal swaps. i'm looking to swap my art or paper crafts for some re-usable fabric snack bags, fabric sandwich wraps, fabric paper towels, glass pendants, ephemera, or art books.
