I have accidentally started a toadstool collection. Red and white has always been one of my favourite colour combinations. I have a wooden darning mushroom that I love, it has obviously seen a lot of holes from the amount of wear on it. The other wooden one, from a vintage shop, I imagine is a needle holder as the top comes off to reveal a small chamber down the middle of the stalk. My final toadstool is made of felt and the white spots are small beads, unlike the other two this is brand new.
I have put together a Pinterest board of toadstool inspiration in preparation for making something to add to my collection. I have collected a wide variety of items for inspiration from fabric to paper mache and vintage ceramics. For more information about these items have a look at my board.
One of the items I am particularly keen to try is Caroline’s pin cushion from last summer.
