Fungi Inspiration

I found this ceramic mushroom yesterday at Eastside Cafe's Pitchforks & Tablespoons and it now lives under our live Christmas tree in a big pot on the front porch.

Inspired by my new acquisition, last night and this morning I sewed this little fun guy.

He is made of soft cotton flannel, including a bit of an old baby blanket, and stuffed with polyester fluff. Here I have him propped by pinecones; he doesn't really stand on his own.


  1. So adorable...I hate mushrooms, but the non-edible kind are great! And fun! ;)

  2. Thank you! I think it looks better in the photo than in real life.
