Last year I stumbled upon a cute tutorial on PurlBee.com, but it was after Easter so it was too late to make it, but I promised myself I`d make it for next year.
You can find the tutorial here, it is step-by-step and very well written so it can be followed easily. It`s a great Easter craft, especially if you have little sisters/brothers or even children running around.
Here`s how my version turned out :
Happy belated Easter Everyone!

This winter if you remember I posted some mini pincushions on my blog and I also added the link where you can find the how-to for this little project. If you didn`t get the chance to read it or in case you did, but want to revisit it, click here.
This time I used warm, summer-like colors:
On the first one bright red and brown and decorated the sides and top with flowery embroidery:
A closer look at the top embroidery:
On the second one I used yellow and brown and decorated the sides with yellow beads and bow:

Have you tried out the tutorial? Post a link or a picture of how your pincushion turned out!
If you`re not the craftiest fox and don`t have the patience for it but still like to have your own pay a visit to my shop and buy one.
Craft up! :P

" The Matyo area is located in the Northern part of Hungary. The region consists of three settlements, Mezökövesd (the centre) and two villages, Szentistván and Tard.
The word "Matyo" comes from the name "Mátyás" (legend says that King Mátyás gave Mezökövesd the title of "free royal town" in 1464) and was originally used by the population of the surrounding protestant villages to distinguish the catholic Matyo people from themselves.
The Matyo area is united and distinguished from the other settlements of the region by the colourful costumes, famous folklore art and lives tightly interwoven with traditions of the inhabitants. Mezökövesd earned its nationwide reputation based on its unique costumes and free-hand embroidery style. The rich and colourful motives were designed and sketched by so-called "writing" (i.e. drawing) women, who wove the various flowers of their gardens into their clothing." -source-
I found them so inspirational I decided to do something similar from felt and I loved it so much that I think I am going to do a whole collection of accessories based on these wonderful folklore motifs. And just to give you a sneak peak, here is a picture of my first earring:
Keep an eye out for them in the shop!
Have a great week,
