Aww thanks so much!  It took a while to figure out how I was going to construct it but it worked!

The pin cushion itself was basically a hoop skirt made from strips of fabric and plastic tubing.  I then covered it with several layers of batting before covering it in the jersery fabric.  Then I attached the green trims and the strawberry - which doubles as a purse!  Finally I attached the ribbon waistband with elastic on the inside for extra security.
Once that was done I constructed the pins from styrofoam balls and wooden dowels (painted of course), thimble hat and needle staff.  I work in the garment industry so it obviously was well received at work Smiley Looking forward to topping it next time

Great idea  Grin

And it's so clever to use the strawberry as a handbag!
