Oh my gosh! I've just been inspired. I just found this Flickr: Pincushion group and spent an hour oogling the photos! The group is founded by verybigjen (Jen Segrest) of Schmaltzy Craftsy who also has an etsy shop. She is a VERY talented lady!
Of course I bought something from her etsy shop! I picked up this bottle cap pincushion. Awesome!
I have to get to the store to buy some felt!
