Hey all you viewers and Craftster's! The 50th Craftster Tribute Contest inspired me on a cute level. It struck my fancy to make Mr. Cork Guy a Girl Friend! Ready... Everybody welcome Cork Girl!






Cork Girl is a pin cushion! Yay for sewing. Her legs are made to bend at the knee's and she truly adores her lover, the Cork Guy!




I made her out of a gold piece of felt and stuffed her full of Poly-Fil. Her legs, arms, nose and neck are made of cooking skewers, wrapped with beige felt. The black tips on these mentioned parts are recycled from an old soft shirt that I cut up.




Cork girl also has an embroidered tramp stamp tattoo! Kinky, huh?   Wink






Any decorations, like her eye lashes, black trimming, smile, pink cheeks and "cork like freckles" are all embroidered with various stitches.






I had a blast sewing Cork Girl into existence. She came out exactly the way I liked! Cheesy Enjoy!
