GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT ...?


A good friend of mine has got new leather sofas and armchairs! I was commenting on how comfy they were and she mentioned that the only thing wrong with them was that she could no longer stick pins in the arms when sewing/crafting in front of the TV! I could see her problem but had a burst of inspiration - Ican fix that, thinks me ... and this is the result! It's sort of a version of the bottlecap pin cushions, although this was a much bigger cap which sort of cried out for the cupcake treatment!

I was thinking chocolate and banana at the time (I am on a diet, so there are times when stuff like cupcakes dominates what passes for my thinking processes. Did I mention I was suffering from menopausal brain death?) So, two colours of felt, a bit of ribbon, and some cute heart shaped buttons and VOILA! Problem solved. The yellow blobs are the heads of the toning pearl headed pins I stuck into it. If she's read this far then friend knows who she is - this is coming to your house soon!
