Sugar Bowl

This is a gift made for a friend who is greatly enamored of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events books. There is a mysterious sugar bowl which is said to contain the answer to one of the book's many mysteries, but it is never found. Thus, my friend gets a felt sugar bowl pincushion, which may never be opened...

It was pretty easy to sew together the wool felt. I adapted the bowl pattern from an apple pincushion pattern that I found on the internets. I made the top bit triangular instead of pointed, which helped to make the top of the sugar bowl nice and flat. The lid was the apple base, smaller. I ended up somehow needing only 5 pieces for that one.

I'm very happy with it and will definitely work with wool felt again. If you only make small things then the cost isn't prohibitive!
