Vintage Teacup Pincushion

Happy Friday, everyone! 

I've had this tutorial on my to-try list for a while. I found it on a blog I follow - mmmcrafts. Today, I actually did it. And do you know what? I SHOULD HAVE TRIED THIS BEFORE!! It only takes 15 minutes, including time waiting for hot glue to warm up. Crazy quick and easy too. And so cute! 

I had this mini vintage teacup and saucer that I had used in my windowsill teacup succulent garden, but my windowsill is just not sunny enough. Or perhaps I was over-careful in not watering them "too often". Poor little succulents, may they rest in peace. (They did not all die, just a few).

As Larissa mentions in the tutorial, I have also found it annoying to have my round pincushions rolling away while I am trying to pin them. I am hoping this little beauty will hold still for me on its nice saucer base. 

The fabric I used was from a bundle I was given by my generous Grandmother-in-law. Funny how people give away their "maybe one day" stashes when they find someone who is right in the midst of sewing and crafting up a storm. I have also scored some lovely fabric from my Mother-in-law and my own Grandmother. Hurray for generous relatives, right?


  1. Hey, Candy! Thanks for the shout out about the tutorial. Your pin cushion is lovely, and now I have a windowsill teacup succulent garden on my to-do. LOL.

    1. I am loving using the pin cushion! Pretty as well as practical. Thanks again for the great tutorial :)
