I had been toying with this pattern for a few weeks for a friends birthday.
I tried sewing it the way the pattern said and couldn't get it neat enough.
Then Fee whom I had intended it for, made a little felt elephant...
so cute... have a look at her blog HERE
I had an idea to make the house on top of the world pincushion on a wood base, as it would be heavy enough.
Then I thought maybe a glass desert dish would look sweet.
No it wasn't right either.
But then after making the pincushion top...which I LOVE
I was chatting with Judy on Tuesday at sewing I decided to try it in a sugar bowl I had..
It turned out gorgeous I must say...
I used a Brambly Hedge Sugar Bowl as I had two and it was so pretty.
Late I know, but I know she loves it...
I sent her a picture to make sure...
It looks so quaint and cute, just how I wanted I
it to look...
you can make one as well...purchase some wool felt
and a visit HERE to purchase the pattern.
Now I need to make another for another friends birthday present!
