One itty bitty bowl of rice pincushion.  Utensils: chopsticks pins.

So pull up an itty bitty chair and have some.

    Does the bottom one look like a pig to you? For me? The other girl born in the year of the pig?🙂

    Those are ADORABLE! The little bowls–too cute. Are the cushions glued in?

    anything that small deserves the title ‘cute’ for sure – how small are they? and where did you get those bowls? i’ve made some using flowerpots – but those are gorgeous.

    Those are so cute! I just made my first pincushion last night, they are so much fun to make. I instantly wanted to make more.

    Happy Chinese New Year!

    Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty!

    I’ll have to post a picture of what I use for a pin cushion sometime. But I like yours better!

    Your pincushions are cute…is the fabric glued in? I can’t wrap my head around how you did that. I love them!

    Oh, those are great, cute, adorable. I’d say they are a hit with everyone!

    Aren’t you clever! Those are so cute. Love all the little red accents (and isn’t it supposed to be an auspicious color?)!

    I like the idea of having a pincushion with a hard bottom. I always end up getting poked when I pick up the all cloth ones. I have ended up turning a padded cloth cover box into an extremely large pin cushion.
    Very clever!

    Is it just me? I can’t see the photos. 😦

  18. 19 lera February 19, 2007 at 9:15 pm

  19. 20 Hilari February 20, 2007 at 2:56 am

    Those are great! How can I get one?!!

  20. 21 persephonesawakening February 20, 2007 at 11:07 am

    These are far too cute! I wonder if I could make it work in little tea-cups, hmm I see a trip to the thrift shop in my future! Thanks for the inspiration!
