Ever since I made the mouse pincushion for my swap partner I've been wanting to make more to put in my Etsy shop. I had a few of the materials I needed already, but crushed walnut shells are best done through mail order (I got mine here), and it took trips to several different fabric stores before I found the right prints to adorn their ears, tails, and bellies. Now that all of that is done, sewing has commenced. Yay! The first few are done and listed in my shop.
Part of the reason I'm so excited about these is that these adorable mouse pincushions are made from mostly natural materials. From the cotton thread used to stitch them together to the crushed walnut shells in the base. The textured linen and smooth cotton add a great feel as well. Another awesome part is that I will also be offering the option of custom orders. Send me an 8" square of fabric and I'll make a pincushion just for you! Check them out now before they're gone!
