Featured Artist: Makaalohilohi

As a seamstress, I am a little sick of your average tomato pincushion. In my opinion, it's over done. I mean, a tomato? Really? Why food? Tomatoes aren't even cute, like fruit can be. But I digress. I am here to talk about a lovely and talented Etsian and ThreadBanger Guild member, Makaalohilohi. She's got an awesome little shop, selling cozy-looking fleece "scoodies" & adorable scarves with handmade buttons. But my favorite item is one that would sure come in handy: this little pincushion.

Look at the beading detail! It's so pretty, and infinitely better than the bright red tomato pin cushions. If we all had pincushions as lovely as this one, I'm convinced the world would be a better place. :)

Please check out her shop!

  2. Wait! Tomatoes ARE fruit! But I agree that they are not cute. (NO rhyme intended:) Love the pincushion!
