I just had to share this little guy... he made me giggle a bit when i was making him, not really knowing what it was going to turn into.....

the story behind him is .......I was recently in the craft with a FQ swap....I was determined to use all of the FQs, even the little scraps.....This little guy was made out of the corners I cut off of the inside of a fabric basket I made.....

and there you have it..... from corner scraps to an alien pincushion that sits in a spool of thread

thanks for looking!!

I LOVE him and I OWN him! I am looking at him right now! He is just the cutest little pincushion! Not just an alien, I think he looks like an Owl, maybe an alien owl!

I LOVE him. He's so cute and I didn't realize that you made him from the corners of the fabric basket - you clever thing!

You seriously met the FQ swap challenge to use all of the scraps.

Haha total cuteness. You're a lucky owner pjherbert!

The big picture may be amazing but it's the little details that inspire.

He's too cute!  I am crazy impressed by your use of a FQ!
