Over a year ago, I had the idea to make a cute mochi bunny kanzashi hair decoration, I think for Easter. I got as far as doing some research, making the base, and gathering/stuffing the fabric. Then, it sat on my desk as an unfinished white blob trailing strings for…just…so long. One day sitting there embroidering, I just stuck my needle in it for safekeeping, and it kind of evolved into a random tiny pincushion for months. Finally, I gave in to it, abandoned the original idea, and decided to just make him the best mochi bunny pincushion he could be!
I used a soft jersey tubing I had to make the ring portion, so it’s very soft and not irritating, but also kind of folds to the back so he can perch on my table, too, if I don’t want to wear him. I’m so delighted he finally had a finished purpose, and I don’t feel guilty staring at it anymore!
