I made this pincushion for bambam91 in the One little pincushion swap. One of her favourite themes was cryptids and mythical creatures and she had several cute Yeti on her pinterest, so I had to try to make one! It was so much fun designing her Cheesy

She's freeform crocheted and then fluffed up with a dog brush before I added the safety eyes and felt details. The bottom is felt and cardboard to make sure it can sit on a flat surface without wobbling around. Most of the shaping comes from the way I cut the cardboard, but I added a few stitches under the arms to give them a bit more definition.

The pins are shrinky dink pins I made (The tutorial I learned from: http://weewonderfuls.typepad.com/wee_wonderfuls/2005/08/tutorial_for_sh.html). Super easy craft, and a nice way to get pins that match the pincushion. For this Yeti - multicoloured snowflakes.

It's spring in Sweden, so this is a Swedish Yeti changing into it's summer coat. No big white fluffy fur... Luckily she now lives in a warmer climate so the thin fur coat shouldn't be a problem.

The diversity of awesome pincushions from this swap was amazing, so you should really check out the rest of the gallery! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=422386.0#axzz2S56b9pVw
