My mom was sewing a little bag to keep our Scrabble pieces in, but she had all her pins in the little plastic bag it came in on her nightstand. That's not too cool, especially since I have nosy cats who like to steal sharp objects. So I made her a donut:
A donut with sprinkles, that is!
Donut Pincushion by Nevadamama
Yarn: Caron Perfect Match in Brown; Lion Brand Wool-Ease in Natural Heather
Hook: US 3 (3.5 mm)
Somehow I didn't follow the directions exactly, and instead of crocheting it circularly, I ended up having to join it. I did the frosting correctly.
It crocheted up quite quickly, only a few hours.
I think I'll be making another for my aunt who sews!
