MFT July Design Team Creative Challenge

In 2011, MFT is working harder than ever to inspire you, and we have come up with something we think you'll really enjoy. Our Design Team Creative Challenge is a new monthly feature, where we challenge our design team to explore their creative side using a specific theme, product or technique. This month, we're On a Roll!  Visit Kim's Blog for a full list of designers that have taken up the challenge!


I had so many ideas running through my brain for this challenge but in the end decided to go with this pincushion.  I found this idea on Pinterest and recognized the frame used as the same ones I had picked up earlier in the year from the $1 bin at Michaels.  The frame used to be metallic red but that was easily remedied with some black spray paint.  I removed the innards of the frame and hot glued some textured fabric and cotton batting in.  It's actually quite puffy and perfect for a pincushion.
I used the Rolled Flower die to cut some denim and used the Mini Rolled Roses die to cut some Strawberry Ice Cream felt and some cork (currently being re-stocked) and hot glued them on as well.  Those are some Maya Road Trinket Pins sticking out of my pincushion.  



Here's a side view, although it doesn't quite show you how puffy the middle truly is. 




Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I'll see you back here tomorrow for the start of this month's Krafty Peeks.
