After needle felting my abstract picture I kept loosing/misplacing my felting needles. I do have a nice little case for them, but often it's effort to locate and open it! I realised I needed a pin cushion and decided I wanted to needle felt one. I browsed the internet for inspiration, there were several pin cushions that were animal's but to be honest I would struggle to stick a pins in a cute animal, I even have trouble needle felting them, especially the eyes! hahaha. The following pin cushions gave me inspiration for my eventual piece.
I loved all the above idea's. I liked the idea of a pin cushion in something like a cup or pot. Unfortunately I did not have any pretty cups left as I had made candles in all of them for Christmas presents, so I found a small terracotta plant pot. I liked the idea of a little scene like the ones with the rabbits etc, so this was the result:-
A little dinky scene with a little cottage with flowers, trees and a river at the back. I love it, and had lots of fun making it :)
