Bottle top pin cushions: Good enough to eat?

14/05/2010 at 12:35 am (Uncategorized)

“Yummy, funny and very more-ish” says Maggie of the bottle top pin cushions. They do look rather cup-cake like, but we managed to restrict the nibbling to the real cake. The actual pin cushions were crafted from, yes, bottle tops and bottoms, bits of felt and pieces of jumper; beads, buttons and ribbons were added as embellishments.
