Description

Saw a teacup pincushion on sale for like £27 which I thought was a bit much and whipped one up myself instead. The most difficult part was to find a nice teacup! I stuffed some felt with fiberfill and glued it into the teacup. Then I glued the teacup to the saucer and the spoon also. Add some pins and away we go!

Material Notes

Porcelain teacup, felt, mod podge, pins, teaspoon, fiberfill

    I love tea and even more your teacup pincushion! I featured your project on my blog and might try to make one, too! Happy sewing! :)

    Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments :) Indeed I did think about using brown felt but the blue looked so much more cheerful. All I need is to make one for myself now as this was a present but I’m still searching for the perfect teacup. I hope you all make one too! :)

    adorable pincushion! I made a teacup-candle a while ago, but I haven’t thought of making a pincushion. I might try if I find a nice cup sometime. It’s super cute!
