Hello to everyone stopping by from Crafty Vegas Mom via the Arrow Cabinets Pincushion Blog Hop!
A couple weeks ago, I read about the Arrow Cabinets “No More Tomatoes” Pincushion contest. (UPDATED: This pincushion WON the contest! WOOT!) I’ve really been loving contests lately! Probably because creativity + deadline = a project that actually gets finished! And I have several unfinished projects lying around here… but that is a post for another day!
The contest had just one rule – no traditional pincushions. So, I came up with this fella here, and I’m GIVING HIM AWAY! (UPDATED: Giveaway closed, but the tutorial below will stay up)
That’s right, follow this blog, and leave a comment on this post, and one lucky reader will get this pincushion in the mail! US residents only. Winner will be picked on Friday 5/20/11. (Updated: Giveaway now closed)
If you’d like to continue on the blog hop, go check out this adorable cherry cupcake at Pink Marigold. or you can keep reading here to for my tutorial on how you can make your own cactus pin cushion!
To make your own cactus pincushion, you’ll need:
2.5″ clay pot
Needle & coordinating thread
Crushed Walnut shells (available at most pet food stores)
