I made this pin cushion for my friend Julie, whose nickname is Cupcake.  She loves kitschy stuff and has just started sewing for herself, so I thought a pin cushion would be perfect for her.



I drew the pattern for the cupcake myself, embroidering it onto white felt using bright colours.  I used split stitch, seed stitch, back stitch and french knots to realise the design.  I then cut out the shape and backed it on more white felt, stuffing it with toy stuffing. 

I think she is really going to like it and get a lot of use out of it.

That is sew neat!  I couldn't have something like that:  I'd either want to eat it, or get hungry every time I saw it.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
