I was delighted to be a participant in the recent
Snowman Pincushion Challenge with my pincushion
group. All of the entrants did a fabulous job in
creating their snowmen. It was so interesting to
see the different styles of snowmen
that other pincushion makers had created.
For me, it was the first time I had involved myself
in anything like it and it really set my poor little brain
into motion.

Below is my Snowman Pincushion - a Snowman Peddlar!

~~~Snowman Kits~~~

Although it ended up being more of a decoration,
I am very pleased with my efforts, and I had a lot of fun.

On the tray are crocheted woollen caps, snowflakes, bells,
cork pipes, snowballs and wooden bucket. Hanging off the tray
are snowflakes, wooden bucket, pairs of snowman arms, bells,
and ear muffs.

Underneath the tray is a snow shovel, wooden bucket, scarf, snowballs,
and another crocheted cap.

I twisted my ankle on Friday, so while I had my foot
up, I made this very simple little felt Christmas tree
pincushion. Now I want to make a lot more Christmassy

Dont forget to vote in my latest sewing poll!

the tree is such a simple idea but very effective ... and a very nice shade of green too. Where on earth did you find such a nice green felt??

Thanks Susan, it came in a package lot of felt from the US, and they were smallish pieces. That was the only decent size piece of green wool felt. The height of the tree is about 4 inches.

Oh your snowman pincushion is just too adorable for words!!! I love the tree pincushion too! Isn't it just so addictive to start making fun seasonal pincushions?
