I am a huge fan of Betz White, her designs totally rock and I bought a copy of her book Warm Fuzzies just for the cute cupcake pin cushions on the cover.
So here is one of the pincushions I made using her method:
I didn’t have a lot of felted sweaters but I did have one so the outside layer is made from the cuff of a hand felted recycled sweater. The middle layers are good old Felt Works felt – I love Felt Works felt because is it bumpy and full of wool felty goodness.
I wrapped two layers of Felt Works felt into a cone and stitched it to fix it. Then I wrapped the lot with a sweater cuff over sewn with some rick rack and pearls. The middle has a big faux pearl and a bead cap to finish.
It’s a fun project to make and I reckon it took me about an hour.
