Pin Cushion Madness!

I've been collecting caps for the past couple weeks now, anticipating making some really cute pin cushions!

My first attempt was this cupcake pin cushion.  It came out cute, but of course I have bigger, better plans for the next ;)

Then, last night I sat and made these two. They work up super fast and very easy!   Very addicting... I went and bought a 50lb bag of sand today to fill all of my new ones!  I put rice in these with poly fiber fill.  The rice probably wasn't such a great idea but oh well, live and learn!

More to come soon!

I noticed you like animals and world of warcraft.
Have a go at winning one of my bronze mice (I'm an artist).
Ozzy Osbourne got one of my bronze bunnies (I drew the storyboards for the latest WoW ads and it was given to him on set, see 'Ozzy Osbourne WoW Storyboards' on youtube!
Mouse winning info on my blog.
Best of luck,

Cute pincushions! I need to learn to make some pincushions so I can add tatting to them! FUN! :)

Love the pincushions, Sorry about the mice comment, it's not so much that I hate them, it's more like they scare me to death.
