Anyway, back to the topic, I made the mushroom pincushion a while back and thought that it would look cute with the mushroom pins displayed in it. I have made a number of these pincushions in all fabrics and patterns. My favourites are the spotted and gingham fabrics.
The pins are 35mm long. Instead of painting the clay I just used coloured Sculpey. I am sure it was far more time consuming this way, but at least I could start displaying them as soon as they were cool enough to touch, after baking. A word of caution - the pins get very HOT! (ask me how I know!)LOL
DD made a few things for the fairies when they come visiting - mushroom chairs (without pins), a tea set and a fairy pizza only 3cm wide.!
