Strawberry pincushions pattern

After reading Angela's comment, I thought I would give you all the link for this pincushion. It is online and if you paste this site you will be able to print out the templates:
http://www.marthastewart.com/good-things/strawberry-pincushions.

I did change the way I attached the top. I gathered the top of the strawberry with a large enough opening to insert the knot of a piece of cord for the stem. I filled mine with batting not sand but you could use anything including potpourri or lavender. Then I simply tacked it down on the inside of each of the curves. This leaves the green slightly bowed which I thought was a cute effect.

The strawberry pincushion is just adorable! And how good of you to finish off old projects before starting new ones. I tend to get excited about something new before I have finished the ones I am working on, and that way quite a few projects are unfinished... I will really have to do something about it...

Thank you for your comments in my blog. They are highly appreciated. I have also enjoyed my visit here.
