I've finished too.

It seems like a few of us have finished or blogged about our March finish, this weekend.  This is such a cute pin cushion.  I may just make another one, but maybe not this month.


I put a circle of Stitch and Shape in the base of it (rolled it and poked it through the hole after turning the pin cushion the right way.)  It gives a bit flatter base which I was wanting.  I also used the bear stuffing beans inside(in a piece of stocking) and then pin cushion wadding around the beans.
