Unusual Pincushion

Yesterday I set myself a challenge to finish two projects.  So this morning I was trying to think what to do for the first project.  Then I read my sister's blog and she had just made an adorable witches hat pincushion.  It was a challenge on the Fiskars website  to make a pincushions so I thought I would give it a try.  This pincushion is very different from the last two.  I also created a new personal rule "Don't design when hungry".  It came out really cute.

Finished Donut.

The pincushion is better without frosting.  Perhaps next time I will make one with powdered sugar.  Only thing left to do is to sew beads in sprinkle colors on top.  I actually have sprinkle colored beads from making fabric cookies.  It was really easy to make and I will think about a tutorial.  I learned a lot making this project!


  1. PUT IT ON THE BOARD! I LOVE IT. But why isn't it chocolate?

  2. I was thinking that myself! But I didn't have any fleece the right color. I did find some stretchy doll fabric in a chocolate brown. I couldn't believe how real the donut looked! Should have offered it to a cop! I am thinking of making 11 more donut pincushions in different types and entering them at the fair in a pink box. One will definately be chocolate!
