Here is the fascinating evil Kabuki mask pincushion made by alwaysinmyroom!  I love the tiny stitch detailing and paint shading.  Thank you so much, always!   Kiss

I think it needs to have a "clown" warning....brrrr...I thought it kind of looked like the evil clown from the Stephen King movie "IT"... Grin.

The shading is a watercolor pencil...it was an afterthought ,so I could not easily have used crayons to melt the wax...the base is a jar lid.

Hi I received from CALABAZA AND I AM IN LOOOOVE!

This is already a treasured posession of mine - look at my lovely bird and her nest!! What a gorgeous pincushion.  The pins add an extra feature too!!  I love the work that went into the next and the bird and her gorgeous wings.  I love it all !!  Thanks so much Calabaza, i really appreciate the work you put in to make her!! Smiley PS how DID you make the nest - im very intrigued!  Also Calabaza tells me this was one of her first stuffed animals!  It looks like it been made by a pro!! Wink

Oh, gosh, I'm so glad birdie is okay with you! I have maybe a 12% confidence level when it comes to softies that drops to 2% when sending to someone who knows something about them. I thought it was all right but I'm super happy you think so too!

For the nest I made a squat cylinder out of felt then stretched it into a more nest-y shape while sewing around and around it with twine and weaving more twine into the stitches. The button on the bottom helped a lot with shape too. It was kinda roly-poly before that.  Smiley

That mixer is very clever and I just love the bird in the nest.  I knew this would be a fun gallery and it's certainly proving to be so far.

We discovered this recently and thought we would share. You can also edit on Craftster photo hosting by editing and using the rotate buttons. Thanks...we love pictures!
