“Cuptopus” – a needle felted pin cushion

Kathleen Dodge-DeHaven Wins a $25 Gift Certificate to Living Felt!

“Cuptopus” is not just a creature of the sea….he in fact, a very functional pin cushion! 🙂 He was inspired by the Giant Pacific Octopus living under the Deception Pass Bridge between Whidbey and Fidalgo Islands in Washington state. He is made of hand-dyed wool from local sheep on Whidbey Island, and at his core, are dried lavender buds from the local lavender farm.”

Kathleen shares that she prowls antique stores for cups with no saucers, and this clear cup was perfect for her creature under the water!
