Voodoo Doll Pin Cushion

I love being a bit different so i created this voodoo doll pincushion. Shes a cutey with pink pig tails.. Its my very first pattern so i was a little nervous creating it after only a month of crocheting. Thankfully I’m a fast learner and perfectionist, so here goes. Enjoy and dont forget to show me your own take on this. (Not for magical use)

Its very simple and quick to make, great for using a few off cuts of different colours. I used dk yarn with a 3.5mm hook. You could use other but it will be bigger or smaller.
