Easter mushrooms

Easter felt mushrooms
Having ordered the felt for Easter, I thought about what I could make. I'd been given a fantastic mushroom pin cushion made out of felt for Christmas and it inspired me to make my own version, in a more woodland/Easter bunny theme, to sit on the table at Easter.

The Easter mushrooms below were fabricated using an adapted version of a great pattern from thelittlehousebythesea.

The variously sized felt spots are glued on.

The individual components for the Easter mushrooms are shown above. The embroidery thread needles came in this cute pebble design from John James. See below for details of the other components.
