Green Bear Pincushion



After being inspired by this and a pincushion that was made in a ceramic dog that I can't seem to find now, I decided to try it out. So here is my little green bear pincushion. He has been sitting on my shelf for years, completely unfunctional. But now he steps forward, eager to be a part of the crafting. I believe he took all of 5 minutes to create. And when he tires out and would like to return to the shelf to rest, the fabric and batting just pop right out. I think I will be making more of these, so that eventually I can throw the horrible magnet pin thingy out the window. I hate that thing!!

Hope you all have exciting weekend plans. I am planning to spend Saturday with my very good friend Rachel. Instead of exchanging Christmas gifts, we decided to spend the day together. So we have a couple fun stores to hit (most notably, the trim spot I mentioned earlier this week), but mostly we will probably drink coffee and chat. The best kind of Saturday! I am very excited.

Until next time...

Very cute! I saw that same thing a while back and thought I'd try it out, too, only I don't have a planter. I thought I might find one at a thrift shop or garage sale this spring sometime. Gotta love those quick little projects!
