steampunk strawberry

steampunk strawberry pincushion

A little while ago on twitter the delightful Eirlys of Scrapiana tweeted about her pincushion vintage fabric strawberries on the cover of Mollie Makes magazine issue 2. If you are lucky enough to track down a copy of the magazine inside is a strawberry tutorial, written by Eirlys. I haven't been able to track down a copy of Mollie Makes, there is a dreadful lack of the good craft magazines around here (somebody should do something about that.

Scrapiana/Eirlys challenged me to make a strawberry on the darker side, something zombified or steampunk or dripping in blood... honestly what do people think I am?... *looks at books, dvds and dolls and monsters*Never mind don't answer that. ;o)

Oh, wow! Thank you for blogging about this! Yours is such a novel twist on the project, Apryl - no curtsies to cutesy from you! Over the moon that you're contemplating another. Can't wait to see it... :D

I think your strawberry isn't too welcoming to eat it, but... gosh isn't that just the darkest strawberry my eyes have ever seen? genius :)

love that

I subscribed to Mollie Makes - have two issues so far, but no time get inspired with it :)
