Pincushion finished!

I finished my cross-stitch pincushion kit last week.  The embroidery went pretty fast, and then I washed it with Eucalan, pressed it, trimmed the corners, serged around the edge, and and then tried to stitch it around the pincushion form.  The fabric was still too big - it covered the hole on the form where the pincushion base screws in, so I took it off, trimmed it more aggressively, re-serged, re-pressed, and stitched and stretched it around the form. 

I think it's cute!
