Felt Hair Brush Pin Cushion

A hair brush pin cushion.. Yes. :o)  Remember my previous post where I was daydreaming about pin cushions? Well, ever since I pinned this one on Pinterest, it has had me hooked.  So this afternoon-- armed with two sheets of felt, some torn up batting scraps, a couple of small pieces of card stock (taped together) and some embroidery floss-- I set out to make one.  And it turned out like this:

It maybe took an hour, and I just love it.  Thank you Pinterest!

Here are some pics of the process:

And now my little tomato is not so all alone. :o) 

Cross that off my list of 2012 things to try.  It was so much fun, though, I will probably be trying some more.

This was my inspiration:

It is from, and there is also a tutorial there.

With pin cushions on the brain, I'm going to go and link up @ MRL's Thursday Think Tank.  Can't believe I made something *Pinterest-inspired*. It might just become a habit. ;)

Happy Thursday!

Good job!! Your pincushion is gorgeous.

That is just too cute! Even I could do that one (and I just might have to, too).

I've been on a kick of making pincushions myself lately and I'm going to have to try this one out! So cute!
