Pin cushion softie

Started this mushroom pin cushion before the holidays and just got around to finishing it up. I used some brown cotton velveteen for the top, white wool for the stem and a veined beige fabric sample for the underneath part. When I saw the fabric at ARt From Scrap I just knew I'd use it on a fabric mushroom someday...just added the "beaded" beads on top for fun.
