So I decided it would be cool to try and make a pincushion, cause I just have the cheapie tomato that came with my travel sewing kit when I was 12. Then I thought maybe I could make some to sell. That might be fun. :) But I don't just want to make plain ones, cause that would be boring (and easy). For some reason I never allow myself to start new projects with something easy. I don't know why, but I've always been that way. Anyway, I was thinking about it, and thought I could make themed pin cushions and included some cute sculpey topped pins to go with them! That would make use of both of my current crafting mediums! :)
That brings us to what I did today. I had made a list late last night, on ideas for pin cushion themes. This morning I couldn't find it (it turns out it was under my keyboard!), and I could only remember one of the ideas: cheese with mice pins. So that's what I have been working on today.
I've actually never made a felt piece in 3D before. They have always been flat or just two pieces sewn together with stuffing. I think it's coming out pretty well. I'm not thrilled, but it's working at least as well as I expected and I think now that I have the hang of it, it will be easier to do more. Here's some pics of the work so far.
Now that I've finished sewing it up, I think it might have looked cuter if I hadn't turned it inside out, but unfortunately I sewed it so that it had to be inverted. :( I think if I make another cheese I will leave it as is.
Right now I'm sewing on some holes. All cheese needs holes right?
