Another experiment.

Two weeks ago, I hosted a pincushion making workshop for Toowoomba Brown Owls. Everyone was successful in creating their own pincushion;
Thanks Melita, for your encouraging words of support.
I still have a lot of left over materials for the kits, and have made extra ones up.

We have spiralling in clockwise from the left: embroidery threads, plastic, bags of stuffing (one with a super awesome surprise sticker), stitch material, REUSE stickers, How-to booklets, lids, eraser, pins, scissors (sewing and paper), pen, pencil, felt siding and bases, cloth, artist cards, supplementary booklets.

Cloth, thread and felt pinned together.

Stitch material folded in the How-to booklet, supplementary booklet and card.
Add bag of stuffing and lid…

All done. And a sticker in the corner like a cherry on top.

The stickers were hand-drawn, and each one is a little different. I drew/compiled the other two booklets aswell, and will be selling these kits at the Smells Like Zines distro in Toowoomba. I can also be contacted via this page and this page if you’re interested in purchasing one.

These kits are made from 100% reused or recycled materials.
