That’s what I’ve named my wrist pincushion. I’ve had this idea for a wrist pincushion recently floating around in my head. I’ve seen them at craft stores but they always have a nasty plastic bracelet. This is my first go and needs refining. I used two pieces of felt. One piece I backed with double sided interfacing, then cut out the circles and ironed on the other piece. Embroidered around the hole (petal) edges with variegated thread, french knot (of course) centre with Lili LaMalice beads in the centre. The elastic is maybe a bit thick and white. I’ve also bought some clear bra strap material, but not sure if it’s stretchy enough.
This little guy was motoring across the road on Saturday as I drove past him at about 50km (his shell was approximately 4cm long) . I saw him out of the corner of my eye, pulled over fast and jumped out the car. I don’t know where he came from or where he was headed as there wasn’t any water and it’s the middle of suburbia. He was being eaten alive by ants that I picked off him. Took him home and then wondered what the heck to do with him. Spud wanted to eat him. After a bath in some water he perked up. We dropped him off to a local waterway near home. Chris pointed him towards water and he promptly turned around and started heading for bitumen again. Go figure!
