Tea Cup Pincushion

Old tea cup crafted into pincushion.

Ad

Approximate Time: 1 evening

Supplies:

  • old teacup
  • pins
  • needles
  • decorative and useful items
  • small spools of thread
  • scrap of material
  • stuffing
  • glue
  • hat pins
  • small scissors

Instructions:

Glue cup to saucer. I usually do that the night before to let the glue dry thoroughly.

With the scrap of material, place a dessert plate on it. Trace around plate and cut on lines. 1/4 inch from edge do a running stitch. Pull the stitching, making it into a small circle, this is known as a yoyo.

Stuff until it is the size needed to fit into the teacup. Glue in place.

Glue lace edging around rim of cup. Group several hat pins, anchoring a needle threader, or whatever things you may want to decorate with. I then wrap in cellophane or it is also pretty wrapped in tulle. Add bow or pretty ribbon. Makes such a pretty gift!

Very creative and a great use for mis-matched or odd tea cups and saucers. The attached saucer provides a good spot to rest a spool of thread that you are working with.

Thank you for sharing.
Thumbs Up!

Makes a darling little gift, or something to treat yourself with.
It would look nice on the table by where you sit to watch
TV and do a little mending.

Thank you for the great idea.
