So here is what I've done with my pincushions.....I guess they're not pincushions anymore!
As you can see, I made quite a few of these little things, (and these are only the ones I have got around to finishing, there are several more not sewn up yet)...........then just crocheted a bit of a leafy, green viney thing for joining them all together, and ta dah! one (or two) flowery hanging decorations!
...I decided to add a few random leaves in between, just because I like this the look of this little leaf.....
They were tricky to photograph, so in the end I chose to hang them of my gardening wardrobe rather than hanging from the ceiling,
Do you think they would make a cute addition to a retro inspired baby's nursery? Or little girl's room?
There is one with blues, reds, white and green, and one with more lime and watermelon, they all look quite similar in colours in the photos, but in real life the red/blues one is a much cooler palette.
Once again, I'm drawn to the totally useless, completely decorative object, but I am not going to apologise! I must say they make me pretty happy, and I am definitely making a few more to join these two.
Sorry about so many similar pics, I couldn't decide which ones to post, so just whacked the whole lot up.
Anyway, hope your day is going well, and you are getting up to some fun crafty mischief!!
(Last official day of school holidays here, so back to the old routines next week ,boo hoo!)
If you are interested in the pattern info for these pincushions, I have linked to it on my first post about these things here.
