Retirement of the Care Bear Pincushion

Care Bear Pincushion
So I used to use a small care bear as a pincushion. Think about it: I used to stick pins and needles on him(?). And I even strangled him with an elastic band. Kinda cruel righ? And I call myself an animal rights activist. For SHAME! So It was about time to do something about it.
Leopard Pincushion
Much better! And cruelty-free. Well, it's animal print.. hehe. I used this tutorial for it, just like before. And the star button is one of the 288 I got from my mom's friend. Actually there were 4 of those star buttons. And on the other side I put an elastic band so I can wear it around my wrist when I'm sewing. Me likey!
Finland has been so sunny and warm these past few days. Lovely. It's just a little hard to take un-shadowy pics in this sunlight. But I can very well live with it.
late edit, didn't want to make a while new post for just one little thing:
Purple Square PinCushion
I made a square one too. Did it pretty much the same way as in the tutorial, but I used a coaster as a pattern. I'm not sure what to do with it. Maybe I'll take it with me the next time I'm going to mom's. The pincushion there is a little stuffed animal as well.

Funniest thing I've seen all day. I may have some small care bears needing to be retired soon. Thanks btw! I think you would look great with bangs and if you don't, it is just hair it grows back. :)

Ok the care bear was funny and disturbing at the same time... hahaha I like both of them!! but it think the new one is more "humane" I didnt even relize you were from Finland. I think I might get a pen pal from Finland... yeah... I dont know why I told you that.... Ok.. bye. hahaha
