For some time now I've had an idea buzzing through my head, and despite last Saturday feeling like I didn't want to see my sewing machine for a long time, by yesterday I was itching to make something!
And that something is a pincushion (my idea is for a range of pincushion people!).
This is my first attempt at a prototype
it does have a certain charm about it but the head is too small I think. The face and hair is drawn on this one but will be embroidered.
So, I made another template, this time with the same size body but a larger head.
As you can see I didn't even finish this one as I just wanted to see if the proportions were right.
A bit rough around the edges, but this is the design I'm going with...
definitely need to work on that face (same size eyes would be a good start!).
The idea is to have different faces, hair colour, clothing etc and they will all have a name, possibly embroidered on them somewhere.
What do you think to sticking pins in 'people'?
I have more trouble sticking them in 'animals' myself - wonder what that says about me?!!
Have you had a crafty weekend?
