Monster pincushion

This afternoon - while I should have been making more dolls - I made this monster pincushion. Now, it's not a "monster" cause of it's size - it literally IS a monster! lol

I bought a kit to make one quite a while ago, then decided to use the pieces for patterns - and it's taken me this long to get around to it. Once I started tho, it only took about an hour to make. I cut out the top piece, put on the eyes, mouth etc, then pinned it to another piece of felt. Did running stitch around it, stuffed it with sheeps wool, then cut around it. Fun and easy - and now I have a pincushion for my worktable. Which means, the one that I started (the mini sampler) will be given to my mother for Christmas - I hope she'll like it.
