...mmmm....yummy!

Don't they look good enough to eat? :))  Yummy little bon-bon pincushions made out of wool felt and buttons from Just Another Button Company (JABC). 

JABC has a variety of new wool pincushion kits available.  Guess what the latest one is?  A little Sheep!  The kits are a bit pricey.  You do get everything to make the pincushion(s).  The only thing I needed to make these little treats were a needle, some sewing thread and a bit of glue.  You get all the wool pieces, the specialty thread, the JABC buttons and stickpins, as well as wool roving for the stuffing.  This one included the little heart-shaped box.  It is only about 6 inches across.  The little 'candies' are about the size of a chocolate truffle you might buy.  Very easy to make...only took me about an hour and a half, from start to finish!  Love it, love it....yum!

**oh, and no, I don't have a vested interest in the company...just happen to really love my little treats!**

Hello Michele, yes they are jummy. I also bought the kid, it was so hard to resist so even it was pricey :-)
