This is Petula the lady beetle pin cushion. I got the pattern out of Frankie magazine issue 23. She’s a handy sewing pal and I also made a bumble bee who is yet to be named. She’s unfortunately looking alittle fuzzier that usual as my cat tends to steal her off my sewing table while im not looking.
I plan to make a donut or cupcake shaped one soon, which once the pins are in, the coloured heads will look like sprinkles!
if you would like the instructions please send me a message.
my apologies for the picture quality!
Red, black, yellow, and white felting wool, yellow embroidery thread, felting needles.
