Well, while working on the new idea I gave you a sneaky peek of last week, another idea popped up, which kind of took over. And here it is, a parcel pincushion.
The address says 'pins & needles, the sewing box',
...the only problem I had with the design was what to stuff it with. Felted wool has a lot of give, which is great for the rounded shapes involved in making animals, but can be a bit of a problem when it comes to anything requiring hard, straight edges. The only solution I came up with was to use foam, a block of seat pad foam cut down to size. Any other ideas??
I kind of like how it's turned out. Think I'll be making some more of these for Etsy asap!
