Description

I joined a Blog Hop over at SewWeQuilt and Thursday was my day to show my pincushions.  Directions were only that there were to be "original" and pincushions.  I took "original" to mean we were to design something we hadn't seen anywhere in the pincushion world. 
I had found a very cute hexagon pumpkin candle mat over at ecoughlindesigns here.  http://busybeeweb.com/ecoughlindesigns/HexiPumpkinCandleMat.pdf   I decided to use wool and cotton to make a pincushion using the hexi pumpkins.  I love her mat,  but I love my pumpkins too!

Then I started wondering what a guy, like my son for instance, would want for a pincushion if he quilted.  My son would like a real VW bus so I decided to make him one!   He's not a quilter but I thought he might at least appreciate the VW bus.

Using wool, and a few buttons, and just a few drawings I made, I came up with the VW bus "Flower Power" pincushion.  I just wanted to share them with you.

Thanks Whatthebobbin . The VW bus now resides at our son's. He won't be using it as a pinnie but he does love VW buses and thought this one was really cool. Pretty good coming from a 30-something male!
