When I began work on it again I decided that she was much cuter sitting than standing. But she needed some type of "prop". I was going to go out and buy some small flowers to glue into her hands, but decided she needed to be "useful" as well as cute. My sewing room is small and I like things to have more than one purpose. Aha......how about having her hold a pincushion? Better yet? How about she hold a flower pot pincushion?
So after finishing all of her "features" I set about making a flower pot pincushion. It wasn't all that difficult, an empty Keurig K-cup, a few scraps of material, some batting and a little rick-rack finished it all off.
Introducing my UggaBear Pincushion:
I took this picture earlier today and it is even better than the close up one I took tonight to add to the blog! Tonight's picture was a little too blurry...I'm really shaky. I can't help but smile every time I look at her!
Hmmmm.....on second thought...she isn't done yet! I think she needs some cute pink eyelashes. I wonder if mom would embroider some on for me?
