I LOVE that!
I want one - my name means "lily"
Awesome job Eliea!

I had a swap partner recently who requested a pin cushion and so I started scouring this thread and google for ideas. I was going with a fish pond theme and this came to me:
It's a lilly pad!
I used a bunch of the techniques from here to make it I just changed the shape of the cushion and made a little felt lilly for her to use for her needles.

I think you could do it no problem. I saved the pattern so if you guys like I can scan it for you and post it. It's pretty easy just some felt for the flower and cotton for the lilly.

If you don't mind, yes PLEASE!  Thank you!

I would love to try and make this.  I have this dream of having a giant vase of water with a water lily floating in it, and a goldfish swimming around.  Our apartment doesn't allow fish tanks bigger than 10 gals. so I can't wait to move to a house.  Till then, this can be my water lily!!!

Wow! That's so beautiful, as always! Go on, let us into the secret - how did you cut all those teeny flowers? By hand?  Undecided

ah the sizzix paddle punch master strikes again!  Samsara, go back a few pages and you'll see the explanation and the link to some great pics.

I am so amazed by your patience in stitching these, and your wonderful sense of composition verybigjen.  I'm also always too late to buy the ones I like... Maybe that's a good thing - I'd be so broke!  Wink
