Those are wonderful! I love the Frida one! Those would be great hung from a Halloween tree. Like an Easter tree... but spray painted glittery black or something. Oh I'm getting all giddy for Halloween thinking about it.

That's so cute and colorful! I'm also interesting in knowing where you found all your little trinkets.

I really like that it says "BOOMIN". That rocks. Great idea, too. Smiley

Thank you everyone for your kind words and compliments! It really means a lot to me. This place has such a warm and inspiring atmosphere. Maybe now in the future I won't be so shy to post.  Smiley

oh, this is the cutest thing ever! what size is it? i think shrinky price tags are a great idea. take more pictures if you do!

Let me see here... (ruler in hand)

The base of the pincushion is about 3 and 1/4" across and about 1 and 3/4" high. Including the miniatures, at it's tallest point (the wine bottle) it's about 5" tall.

Thank you for your compliments! I really have been meaning to make the shrinky dinks but I have a hard time following through with one project before wanting to start another one. I really should get on that though... considering her birthday was in early August. haha

i love it......it kind of reminds me of a elven picnic on top of a mushroom no offence

Thanks! I actually take that as a compliment... I sort of have this "thing" for mushrooms (no, not the hallucinatory kind haha) and mushroom-related items, and a big interest in mycology.

I actually bought the polka-dotted felt with intentions to make mushroom pincushions but I thought it might work well for this too.

Did you use felt from the store, or did you needle felt it?  I love your embroidery, too!

Thank you! I just used regular acrylic craft felt from the store.

Hello! This is my first real post on craftster... I'm a long time lurker though. I've been sort of shy to post!

This is a gift I made for a friend of mine for her birthday. Basically all she eats is baguettes and various cheeses and also loves wine so I decided this would be a suiting theme. She also told me she was in need of a pincushion so I guess that's how it all came together!

This is a close-up...

(Excuse the funny backgrounds...my camera is sort of poor-quality and I have to work with the only natural light I can get which is outside...my house is so dark!)

The whole thing.

Basically I just made up patterns as I went along. Everything is made out of felt and stuffed with poly-fill so it's all is "pin-stickable", haha.

I'm thinking of making some shrinky dink pins to go in the top that look like price signs.

This is really awesome! I actually bought one of those paper mache things awhile back and didn't know what to do with it, I just thought it was cool. I actually thought about "tattooing" it, but I never had the ingenuis idea of turning it into a bank. Yours really inspired me so I'm drawing on mine right now.

I spend money like crazy too so maybe this will help me out.

I'm going to try painting on mine with artists ink... I don't know if it will soak it up too much but I'm trying to go for that weathered-flash look. I'll post pictures when I'm done.

Thanks for the inspiration, you are one clever lady Smiley
