Recycle Challenge

The most recent pincushion challenge was to make one using recycled objects. If you visited me earlier in the week you saw the 2 thrift store sweaters I picked up, the pincushion was their destiny.
Casey & I spent some time in the craft room yesterday afternoon turning those sweaters into a cupcake pincushion.
I threw the sweaters into a hot water wash to felt them up a bit so the wool was thicker and when I took the sweaters out of the dryer I found the nice round wad of wool that I placed on the top to act as a cherry. The pins are supposed to resemble sprinkles, I made them out of FIMO clay. I can't wait to see what other crafters came up with for this challenge!
