Cutest Tomato Pin Cushion

Isn't this sweet!  This design is from Wild Olive.  Mollie makes awesome embroidery patterns...this one is called: Crafty characters.  With this design you get lots of other sewing room/studio characters like yarn, scissors, glue, spool of thread...and many more...all with sweet faces.  Visit her Etsy shop.
I turned the design into a pin cushion by cutting the stitchery in a square when done....backing is red felt.  I added an old measuring tape and safety pin with buttons.  I couldn't resist adding pink cheeks with a cotton swab and makeup blush. 
You may wonder why a pattern designer buys another artists designs.....because for one thing is so cute....I can't help it.  I also like to learn from others and hope others learn from me.  I have lots of patterns from other making something completely different.  You can never learn enough about sewing, quilting, crafting, and all the others arts out there!

Come join the fun on Whipper Berry's Friday Flair....see what everyone is making.....what a beautiful site!
