Sugar Skull

I didn’t get to take in as much sewing as what I would have liked this weekend, but I did manage to make one fun little project: A Sugar Skull Pincushion. This is another one of those fabulous ‘in the hoop’ projects that I can stitch out and complete on my embroidery machine. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any white felt on hand, but I did have a nice, hefty black wool felt in my stash. I stuck with the color pattern as much what looked appropriate with the background color and I really think that it makes the design pop. I have to say, I like it so much, I might not stick pins in it!
