    These are little "party favors" I made for a post card swap I am hostess for and the theme for the PC swap is "EYES". I thought it would be a nice little way to remember our swap...

    Very nicely done....However, I don't think I could bring myself to stick pins in...well...maybe round the edges!

    You should do a tut for us. I think everyone would enjoy that. I know I would.

    Ouch! The pin in the eye gives me the willies! So that means they're so realistic it makes me cringe :roll:

    ROFL I am always saying "I'd rather stick needles in my eyes." when I don't want to do something. Those give it a whole new meaning. :lol: Very cute. :thumbup:

    Hmmm! Halloween is coming .... a few eyes sitting around for the trick-or-treaters ... hmmm....


    When we were kids we used to say:
    "Cry baby, cry
    Stick a needle in your eye ..."

    kids can be mean to each other! LOL :lol:

    I'm not really sure I'm allowed. This is NOT an original pattern by me. I found it in a book called "Pretty little pincushions". I can tell you that the base is a soda bottle cap.....materials included felt, black sequin, 1 seed bead, thread to match.....

    I have that book, too. It has some really cute ideas. I've made several of the african violet pincushions as gifts. Also made one of the beehive. Should've taken pictures of them, but didn't have this board to share with then....
