A little something sweet

I fancied making something a little different which has happily coincided with the new challenge over at That Craft Place Challenge Blog.  The theme of the new challenge is to make an Altered Item.  So I for my DT make I have made a Doughnut made from wool and then decided to turn it into a pin cushion ;-)

I used DK wool to make the base and the topping.  I then stuffed the doughnut with toy stuffing, glued on the top for a smooth looking edge and popped in some pins with colored ends from a pinwheel to act as sugar sprinkles.  All the goodies are from the lovely That Craft Place Shop.  If you do not have time to make something for the challenge why not stop by and look at all of the other wonderful entries for some inspiration anyway.  Remember there are always wonderful and regular projects being popped onto the Inspiration Blog that even I enjoy learning from and I am sure you all will too.  (((((HUGS))))) to you all xxx
