I haven't sewn much lately (as quickly became apparent the other day), since my sewing machine has been buried behind a mountain of stuff in the living. So between that little barrier (okay, pretty big barrier, it's not like I could even climb over it or anything) and the fact that I had a few requests for some crochet stuff, I've been back to the hook for a week or so.
I'm still sorting out the hair clips that were requested (sorry, Bree!), but when I had a request on the Facebook page (which, by the way, is still two "likers" short of having a give-away! But don't get me started on that...) for a crochet cupcake pincushion, I decided it was definitely a project I could tackle right now.
I'm not including the pattern because I found about a gazillion (really, that's a real number. Only slightly more than a bazillion) patterns, all with only very, very slight variations if there were any at all. So I'll leave that little bit of hard work to you, because if you're like me, you'll also find lots of other fun stuff you'll want to make, and I wouldn't want to deprive you of that. :) But, if I were you, I'd start here. Or here. I'm just sayin.
(Please excuse the really, terrible, horrible photo. It's 11:00 here & I just finished this up a half hour ago. Natural light is hard to come by this time of day. Again, just sayin'. Don't be a hater.)
I'm pretty darn happy with how this turned out. It's stuffed with poly fill, but I put it in (BRAND new & clean, I promise, so please don't freak out) pieces of nylon knee-highs so the filling wouldn't peek or eventually make its way out from between the stitches since it's meant to be poked & prodded. Again, I promise you I used brand-spankin' new nylons, straight from the box. Not my stinky old used ones. I promise. That's gross. :)
Those "sprinkles" are the pins!
It's pretty much "real" sized, about 3 inches tall & 3 inches at the widest point.
Until next time...
