I have been wanting a tomato pin cushion for as far as I can remember... So today I broke down and made one! Enjoy, I hope this post turns out how I wanted and you can use it as a tutorial. :) It will be my first if so.
* 8" cut out fabric circle
* thread, I used embroidery thread
* fluff, anything to stuff your pin cushin
* sand (optional)
* glue gun and glue sticks
I started this project and then decided to do the progression pictures for the tutorial after, opps. Knott your thread and make a running stitch around the outside edge of the circle, (the top of the tomato) bunching it together as you go. (Seen above)
or...(Now this part is optional.) Leave a tail for the sand strawberry, I left about 6".
Cut a small triangle for the strawberry, and straight stitch a seem to make a cone. Then fill the cone with sand and make a running stitch around the top of the berry.
