thanks to the inspiration i received from robin, i took some lil baskets that i have had sitting around for about, oh i don't know, 4 years and made lil pin cushions outta em.
i cut the handle off the basket so it wouldn't get in the way. i took some stuffing and filled some fabric i had laying around and mushed it around until it had a nice shape. i then weaved ribbon around the top of the basket and then hotglued the stuffing/fabric inside the basket.
i then make some pins with my shrinky dink set and these work so much better than those printable shrinky dink sheets. my.gosh.are.these.addictive.to.make.
i sent these out in swaps and they have arrived to their destinations by now so its safe to post.
