The Goth part was quite accidental. I run a cross this strawberry pincushion pattern at Martha Stewart. I wanted to try it right away, but only had pink and black felt. Well, then.
I changed the pattern a bit. I made the end flat instead sharp to get the shape I wanted, and cut about 1cm off from the long edge to make the strawberry shorter. I also completely winged the stem.
I'm not sure what to do with the strawberry, since it's stuffed with regular polyfil and does not sharpen the pins like it's supposed to. The pins would suit the Goth theme, though.
