Pansy pincushion

This is my rendition of a pincushion from the http://www.justlilla.blogspot.com/ of Sept. 18- 08, she made hers from velvet and I made mine from wool felt. I think mine are probably bigger than hers, mine measure 5" by 4" I added leaves to the pink one, and left the purple one with out. The little heart shaped yo yo's are made from a template I bought at a fabric store. They are fun to make and look cute on country style things, they could be made from silk or satin and be more elegant. My daughter wanted one of the pansies for a sachet. So I made it the same way just added sent to it. You could add dried lavender or such to the stuffing and that would help with the sent. TTFN
