Description

Since I have no fabric to work with right now, I am recycling everything I have leftovers and make the most out of nothing :)

This quick project only requires some common household items as cotton balls, a handful of sand, flour or rice for weight, something to decorate with (dried flowers, beads or anything that you would like to see on your pin holder) and some fabric of your choice…finally, and odd piece of teacup. (go for vintage if possible)

I cut a round circle out of a baby’s hat which I have purchased for 50c today, stuffed it with rice and cotton balls and sew the bottom together. Take your needle and thread and stitch close to the edge, all the way around the circle, when closing the bottom be careful not to rip the thread by pulling it too hard.
Just stuff the cushion into the cup and decorate it. Some people use glue to secure the cushion to the bottom…I wouldn’t, that’s why I suggested rice or sand instead to hold it at place.

I hope you like my lil’ cup x
