Sweet Musings with a Bitterly Sharp Wit

Tofu-Powered Crafting


Okay, so I know that I should wait to post this little gem… Seeing as it's part of a swap that I have yet to send out… But the poor thing has already been sitting around for so long already, I just can't restrain myself any longer!

Yes, it is a knitted block of tofu. Yes, it is smiling. And finally, yes, it is a pin cushion.

Another original pattern, I made this to take part in the Vegan / Veggie Swap going on at I'm so excited – This will be my first swap, and I almost have everything else ready to go. The deadline is still a while away, but I've been planning as though my life would come to a screeching halt should I be slightly late, so I'm not at all worried about making the cut off.

I'm actually more anxious about how my swap partner likes the stuff I'll be sending her way than what I get in return. In fact, I don't know what to hope for or expect… I don't think I would even really mind getting flaked on, to be perfectly honest. As long as I got a positive response… I just want to be able to brighten this crafty vegan's day.

…And no more sneak peeks before this thing goes out into the mail!

  1. How cute! (Please forgive me initially thinking it was a stick of butter…2 seconds later my brain caught up and figured you wouldn’t make that.)

    Nice job and cute smile.


  2. OMG, I’m dying from the kawaii! That is so sweet. You make very nice faces.


  3. I wanna participate in that swap!!! But I couldn’t find it in the swap area on Craftster… Is it still open?


  4. Ah! So cute. I don’t even really like tofu, but I totally want a happy little stuffed tofu toy. The swap sounds like fun! I’ve always wanted to get involved in one of those.

  6. As your swap coordinator you get a slap on the hand for posting early. Just kidding, I think it’s great, I know Elif and I know she’ll love this little tofu to pieces.


  7. I love it! I would have joined that swap if I hadn’t already signed up for the Harry Potter swap…maybe if there’s another round. I can’t wait to see what else you’ve created! :)


  8. Must… knit…. tofu…


  9. Could I possibly publish the pattern for this in my zine? if so, email me at It is so cute and about the funniest tofu pin cussion I have ever seen.
