The quilters paradise pincushion had a felt flower in the middle but the whole point of this project was to show off some of the fabric, so I made a yo yo and put it in the middle with a button. I attached my button to the top layer earlier than the pattern asked for so that I could get it on well and then ran some thread through the middle after if was stuffed to give it a sort of "belly button."
Then I stuffed it with Jennifer's leftover crushed walnut shells and dried lavender. It smells delicious, and kind of looks delicious to me too! I think it sort of resembles a dessert, though I'm not sure what kind(any thoughts?). The more I look at it, the more I think it could serve as more than just a pin cushion. It would make a nice door stop (you'd have to stuff it with something a little heavier) or even decorative table cloth weights for an backyard tea party! Something to think about!
