I discovered a new site - the DIY Dish. These are girls that teach a lot of fabric crafts - one new one each week during their season. And they start out every season with a pincushion. So I've tried a couple of them. This owl is Season 2's pincushion. I even put pins in him.
He has cute knobby knees.
And big felt eyes.
He's also great as a decor item or maybe even a toy. Who says he has to be a pincushion and get stuck all the time?
I also made a couple of pin cushion mannequins. These were a little more difficult to get together. The sewing was easy. Finding cheap candlesticks was difficult. I did fine some at the local thrift store. They'd decorate any sewing room just fine.
They even wear a nice flower. I'm not sure I could use these as pincushions.
