Mini Monster Giveaway

Oh my, two posts in one day!! I am in the process of making five of these mini monster pin cushions, but I've managed to finish these two already, and couldn't wait to show you. I'm going to give one away to a lucky reader, to enter just leave a comment below, I'll draw the winner on Monday the 7th of April, and they'll be able to pick their favourite (I should have at least three more by then).

Jessica said...

That is so cute!

marianne said...

I clicked over from the Craftzine blog. so wondrously creepy! the second one makes me think of the Eleni Mandell song, Alien Eye.

"one alien eye
broken over easy
running slightly to the right"

~O_~o

April said...

AH! I will have to use more pins. Or less pins... then I can leave them stabbed into the monster eye.

Way cooler than my mom's tomato pin cushion.

shlanna said...

Creepy and awesome

I actually need a pin cushion & these are too cool. Count me in!

Anonymous said...

These are WONDERFUL. I think my favorite is the green one.

Ruby Khan said...

The pink one looks tired and perhaps somewhat frustrated. Or maybe I'm just projecting how I feel by the end of most sewing projects.

Great personalities on both!

Strawberry Cat said...

Those are so gross, but I love them!

Rachel said...

when this pincushion and i locked eyes we knew we were meant for each other...

::thinking very hard on an April Fool's prank involving a realistic fuzzy eyeball::

I'll think of something! :) Very awesome!

Eve said...

creepy but cool. talk about sticking a needle in your eye...

Luke Blackford said...

Shweeeeeet.

Sean said...

So. For over 9 years, my sister-in-law and I have been sending images and objects of eye balls to one another in response to seeing a pamphlet advertising colored contact lenses when they first came out. These pin cushions are great. She is crafty. And it's an eye ball. Please select me! (my sister in law will be so happy)

dora lee said...

heehee thats awesome!! <3

Janet said...

I would love one of these, but I would feel bad if I stabbed it, maybe not too bad..

Mizuu said...

Those are amazingly cute! I want one!

even-star said...

Those are the best creepiest eyeball things I have seen all day. They could only be better if they were made of candy but then the whole pin cushion functionality would be lost.

This is absolutely amazing - i especially like the pink one!

Really good work!!!

With best regards from Germany,

Kati

Fantastic! As an eyeball afficionado, I am charmed by this googler, and indeed it may have been the straw that broke my resistance to attempting to learn the art of felting.
