Couldn't you just see making a whole bunch of pretty pin cushions and lining them up on a shelf or hutch for display with your sewing or crafts? I found the cutest little pin cushion tea cups this week and at this site is a tutorial that has step by step instructions to making one. You could make so many different looks, just seeing a few examples has me inspired to make one. It looks simple, fast and easy! I think this project is going on my list in the coming weeks and I'll show you the results when I am done! Now off to find the perfect tea cup to match my crafty sewing room~ What crafty projects have you done with tea cups? Do you think this is something that you would make? Well, I will have a cup of tea and enjoy all your tea cups while dreaming up my fabric and cup combination's~

  1. Hi, these are wonderful teacup pincushions. I don't have that many teacups, but if I did, I would certainly try creating one of these myself. Perhaps one day I may :)

    Have a wonderful Teacup Tuesday!

    Warmest, Brenda

  8. Hello- I have a pincushion teacup I made out of a chipped teacup once upon a time. I love the first one and the idea of putting a tape measure around it and gluing buttons on the sides. That's just plain cute. Take care.

  9. Thank you for stopping by and visiting me on my first Teacup Tuesday.

    The teacup pincushions are beautiful...and a very unique idea. My favorite one is the last one.

    I have created teacup topiaries. I will have to post a photo one of these weeks.

  15. These are all so cute. I am sure it is easy to make but I am allergic to sewing and irons and only like to play with FLOUR:-)

  16. Hi there; your teacup pincushions are beautiful. I've made only one a few years ago. It was for a ribbon embroidery class I attended. Then after the class we had a tea party. I'll try and post it after I learn more about your's and Terri's Teacup Tuesday.
    Thank you for sharing.
