pins and needles

I am crazy about mini things, I have mini bears, mini quilts, mini punch needle and now these.
My min pin cushion collection I created using felted wool bits, embroidery thread , buttons and the bases are from plastic water bottles/vitamin water. They are stuffed with soft cotton and all hand sewn. I cut a circle for the bottom then a band that goes around the middle and the top was another circle. My husband complains that I am hoarding our garbage now since I started my mixed media voyage. Right now I am keeping several wrappers from gourmet chocolates to see what I can do with them next! I think these are great gifts for those sewing friends you may have.


  1. Hi Miriam! So glad you stopped by my blog! I appreciate your comments so much! I wasn't sure if I should take the plunge and make a change to my background, but now I'm getting used to seeing it every time I open my blog, and am really glad I did it.

    Love these little pin cushions! They're truly darling holiday gifts for the crafters in our lives...and a great way to use up some of those small scraps of fabric we have laying around our studios!


Thank you so much for visiting my blog and helping me expand my horizons!
