Soft & Sweet

So now that its made its destination I can reveal the pin cushion
which I made for the recent Swap I participated in.

It Included:

A 'Girly' Pincushion filled with Fudge
A Scissor Charm
Sweet wee note card that could be recycled into a card front or fridge magnet

And it was all a bit of trial and error ... first time i'd gone 'designer' fabric shopping (on purpose) .. found some nice 'girly' fabric from a lovely Collection from Abbey Rose (i think - eek sorry) and created this pincushion from an old baby food jar with the idea that you could pop some thread and buttons in the jar or extra pins.
I then hunted out a white fudge recipe which ended up being sweetened condensed milk and white chocolate melted down together with a dash of pink food colouring something i hadn't baked before so was an interesting experiment - not much you can do to stop chocolate and condensed milk tasting good though luckily!
I also made a wee Scissor charm to match the pincushion and a note card - all gratefully received

I've been on a wee pin cushion 'phase' ... watch this space ;)
