Sarubobo pincushion and D.I.Y. kit for it

Bobo helps you pincushion
My friend, EmiShimosato(http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=13887) gave me an idea to make a pincushion with Sarubobo.

So I made them!

It's very small and simple pattern. I could make one in less than one hour.
So I decided to make a D.I.Y. kit for the pincushion.

I wrote a step-by-step tutorial with illustrations. My advantage should be hand stitching so I wanted to write it by my hand (* v *)!

And the pattern is also handwritten and hand cut by me!

I'm really enjoying to make this kit. It's fun to think the matching of the fabrics, thread and the button.

Thank you very much for EmiShimosato and everyone who gave me a comment for my sarubobo!
