* winter pin tuffet

Posted on January 28th, 2007 by maitreya. Filed under Sewing/Fabric Crafts.

The theme for this month’s pincushion challenge is winter wonderland. I stole this idea from a tree ornament I saw on another blog. I can’t seem to find the original, though, so if you know, please leave a comment! Very easy: I crocheted a little snowflake and tacked it on top of a little tuffet (2 circles + strip of fabric sewn together). The v. light blue of the fabric really looks wintry to me. It’s pretty teeny (maybe 2 inches in diameter).

    Light blue and white always make me think of winter, too. The little snowflake tuffet is very cute.

    Hey that’s very pretty. I’d go buy it a bunch of pearly white pins if it was mine.

    How sweet! It’s nice to think that it is only two inches wide; tiny things are so nice! : ) With what did you fill it?

  8. jennie Says:

    also wondering about the filling. i need to make one and fill it with something somewhat heavy so my cat won’t knock it on the floor constantly.

    I love this. It’s beautiful and reminds me a the Kenneth Libbrect book that I love called “The Little Book of Snowflakes”
