Felted Wonders

Cover of Betz White's latest book

Betz White came up with these great felted cupcake pincushions.

I found directions are on her blog
and made a felted cupcake for my niece
who loves to sew. 
Then I paired the cupcake pincushion 
with a gift certificate to J Caroline Fabrics
for her birthday.
I have been saving sweaters to make a few more.
(no picture because I had not gone down the blog hole yet!)

Check out this draft stopper!

You can read an interview with Betz White on True North here

you can learn how to make these pins

I saw this book online the other day and thought it looked interesting. I am intriqued more after reading your post! I have so many sweater scraps left over from making my hats. Perhaps they could be put to good use!

If you only lived next door, I would be at your door every day to borrow a book or a cup of something good. You always have such great inspiration.
