This pincushion/needle book combo I made has been pretty popular on the ol' Craftster lately, so I figured I'd post it here too.

The top of the bun functions as a pincushion.

...and the lettuce, tomato, cheese, and hamburger patty are needle book pages.

There's a line of ketchup on the bun that serves as a hand way to keep track of needle threaders and safety pins. (It's made of elastic.)

I kind of want to make another of these. I didn't plan this one out very well and I ended up doing things like sewing the ketchup on after I'd almost finished attaching the domed part of the top. Also I think I could make it look quite a lot better (like by using thread that actually matches the color of the bun).

On the other hand, I also have a long list of other things I want to make, so a second burger might not end up happening. We'll see.

Hi! I found this through Craftster... I love love love this burger!

Would you mind if I tried to make one of my own? ^^

If that's fine with you, I have a few questions: What did you make the ketchup out of? How'd you make the outward lines on the top of the burger - closed darts? Lastly, how'd you attach it at the side? Is it just sewn?

Sorry; I know these should be pretty obvious but I'm new to sewing.
Thanks and well done on your creation! :)

I am doing research for my university thesis, thanks for your great points, now I am acting on a sudden impulse.
