Here she is ladies! My flowerpot pincushion!
It comes complete with...A little ribbon lady bug sitting on a fabric flower petal.
A floral fabric bird that was killing me until I painted it brown and added the blue stitching. Mr bird is either digging for worms or eating my pins. Naughty bird!
Then there's the flower. I LOVE DAISIES! Especially the bright colors of Gerber Daisies. So after trying the same yellow/green floral print fabric as the bird once was I pulled out the paint and made it a bright yellow. The center of the flower is a pin cushion. That brings me down to the pot... the main pincushion if you will. This pot was a throwback from a MOPS (Mother's Of PreSchoolers) project that we did. I had to leave the meeting early so I was never able to plant the herbs in mine like everyone else did. That made it perfect for this project. Originally the pot was pink on the bottom, but I changed it to red so one day when I make the sewing machine mat I already cut my fabric out for, the pincushion will match.
Over all I love it because it's cheery and made into something I love... flowers.
