Meet Mr. Cups! My new helper – I found him upstate in a fabulously junky junk shop – he makes a very cheery pin holder. I love the way his details are painted – I looked him up and found out he was made in Japan in the forties and there is a Mrs. – I’m on the look out. He helped me make lots of mini toadstools – pixie size fungi made from little scraps.
I used the mini size from the little mushroom sewing pattern – just big enough for someone’s pocket.
They’re fun to make in a batch and easy to travel with – just a little bag of scraps and a few supplies. I always use wool stuffing – it gives them a nice sponginess and you can fine tune the shape.
PS -There’s a print version of the sewing pattern too – a 16 page booklet.
I hope you make a batch of sweet mini fungi! Use #annwoodpattern on instagram to share.
