y'all, i love tomato pincushions. i collect them, i display them, i stick pins in them. i love them so much, i have one tattooed behind my ear.

and now, i make them!



the pattern is one i drafted myself, although it's not very complicated - just 6 long elipses with slightly pointed ends, sewn in an alternating pattern. they are stuffed firmly with polyfil, and there is a little bit of rice at the bottom to keep them weighted down Smiley the tops are just acrylic felt & a vintage button! aren't they fun, though!













what do you think? any color combinations that are particularly awesome... or ::gulp:: dreadful? i'm thinking about having a little tomato pincushion booth at this summer's tomato art festival in my city Wink

thanks for looking! Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I love the colors! These are really awesome, and I would also love to own one. I really like the felt on top.

I think they're fantastic! Your fabric choices are so bright and fun. I'd love to have something like this next to my sewing machine.

Your tattoo is so awesome!!

These are so cute. I just have a plain red one myself that I got from my great-grandma (I think?)

Btw... I absolutely LOVE your hair color. Is it natural? I dye my hair red because i prefer it over my natural color but it has never been as bright and wonderful as yours looks. Sorry if I'm being creepy, but I just love red hair. Haha

thank you! no, i'm not a natural redhead... although i feel like i should have been one  Wink i use l'oreal excellence hicolor red in either red fire or copper red (depending on my mood)... you can get it at sally beauty supply Smiley i am actually about to make the switch to henna, the reds you can acquire that way are beaaautiful. and it's good for your hair! double win!

Would you be willing to share your pattern? I really love these! The plain red ones I've always found boring, and these are anything but!
