Finished Pin Toppers and a Pin Cushion

I couldn't sleep last night so I got up and made this pretty pin cushion for the pin toppers we made yesterday.


The Robin's eggs are definitely my favorite.


I think Sculpey clay must last forever because some of this I have had for over 15 years, back when I went through my hemp necklace making faze. I used to make these mushrooms all the time. I think I still have some necklaces with mushrooms like these on them. I love the idea of putting them on the pins. I've seen them at quilt shows and things but I didn't fall in love with the concept until I saw this shop! I could buy one of everything.


I love the pin cushion too, in all it's lopsided glory. I used a cookie tin for the base (about 5 inches in diameter). and made the hexie pillow to fit on top. I made cording for the rim to kind of hold the pillow in place. All in all I think it came out pretty good for being 3 am and not really measuring anything.
