Another sneak peek

Another sneak peek today ;-) It's a Christmas present for a friend.  I think you'll be surprised when you find out just what that bit is :-)
I went to the doll group on Sunday where we started to make a pincushion.  It's going to have 2 little 'babies' round the side.  The pattern is from a book by Kumiko Sudo - Omiyage : Handmade Gifts from Fabric in the Japanese Tradition.  I'm not sure about the fabric I've chosen now, but when the little babies are done in complementary fabric it should look fine.  It's made using half a polystyrene ball covered with fabric, but we put a layer of felt under the fabric.  The base is just a piece of card covered with fabric.
