I like needle felted pin cushions!! I've made several, but not a mushroom. (I've made mushrooms, but not as pin cushions)

You're unique! Just like everyone else!!

That turned out really neat! Congrats on learning the new craft ^_^ How did you like making it? Was it more or less difficult than you thought it would be?

@ tcmatteson:
Thank you for looking and commenting. Its wonderful to get some feedback.
I liked how it turned out and its really easy to make.... but the endless poking... well, I would definetly recommend this for people going through a though breakup.
But the result is a lot of fun and actually useful, just keeps tipping over. Hmm, constructional flaw, I guess, next time Ill add some weight in the bottom.

You could glue a large metal washer from the hardware store on the bottom to help combat the tipping, and it would probably last a little longer with a base as well.  I've done that with some of my felty pieces and it's worked fairly well.
