Hellooo Smiley I'm not quite sure if this belongs here, but I did some hand sewing on it so maybe it's ok.

I designed and made this beetle pin cushion yesterday afternoon/evening for my brothers girlfriend's birthday (which was today) becuase she wants to start making her own clothes and because she's just finished doing lots of mechanical things to fix up an old yellow beetle that is now on the road.

I made it up as I went along, looking at a few photos of beetles as I went, so it's a bit messier than I would have liked it to be and I would have liked to added more detail to the front and back and around the wheels - but she liked it Smiley

It's all felt, sewn with sewing cotton and stuffed with toy stuffing.

It's super cute!!  I'd hate to stick pins in it, but how cute would that be if you found ranbow ended pins and flowery pin too?

OMG I want one!  But in sky blue, to remind me of the needy b*tch blue beetle I used to have.  Smiley
