My previous post shows the cake pin cushion that I made for myself and now I've made one for a friend in her favorite color, purple. I also made her some special pins to go with it using Fimo. I wanted to do the Shrinky Dink thing, but I don't have any of that material right now. The dark purple and bright yellow flowers are Fimo. If you'd like to learn how to make one, go to http://www.thediydish.com/ and watch their first video.
