The week of the mushroom - Darning tool
I'm aware people don't darn their clothes that much anymore, I too don't do that very often, but if I do I allways use this mushroom shaped tool for that.
I got this tool from my great aunt who passed away few years ago. It wasn't painted back then, it was just wood, with some pen scetches on it, like some child had doodled something on it. It wasn't very pretty.
So since it's quite obviously mushroom shaped I painted it to look even more like a mushroom. I painted the top red and the foot and the underside white and added white spots on top. Now it's a fly agaric looking darning tool. I think it's so cute and handy too.
