Rose pincushion

Here ya go..I finally did something creative! I'm so proud. It isn't anything I've had on my list...but it was good fun anyway. I made this one with poly felt, but I will make a few with 100% wool, now that I've found a source. This is actually a rather large cushion though it could be made smaller. I used some of the ideas for this from the Carol Duvall show: Episode CDS-554. I'm going to write to the lady who was on the show and see if she minds if I make a on-line tutorial for this. I've changed a few things because she made them with silk, so I didn't need as much fabric etc. Plus I filled it with poly and sewed it on to felt. So keep an eye out for the tutorial.

This pincushion looks great! I'll be keeping my eye out for the tute! Would you mind sharing your source for wool felt? (I've been searching for a UK source).

I found 100% wool felt at http://www.myriadonline.co.uk/.

It is a children's craft supply place. I was really surprised I couldn't really find it anywhere else on line! If you find another source, please let me know. I did quite a bit of research.

I think I will go ahead and do the tute this weekend, without showing the part that can be found on the Carol Duvall website. That ought to work, I did try to contact the person that did the show, but I had to go through her publisher which might not work!

So keep an eye out! It will be my first, but I think the project is such a nice one it would be good to do!
