Make Do & Mend Monday - New Pincushion
I decided on this teacup since it is rather small and it is blue. (I really like blue!) And, it reminds me of Holland, where my friend Heidi lives who hosts this wonderful day of the week for us. This is an extremely easy thing to do. I took a luncheon plate, traced the circle on my fabric, cut it out, and put a running stitch around the perimeter. Then, I drew the thread and stuffed the circle. After I had stuffed it, I finished drawing the circle and sewing it shut. All, that is left was to put it in the cup. You could put a tiny but if glue around the inside of the cup but I did not do that since I stuffed it tight. You could also decorate the cup with rick rack, and I might do that later. But, for right now, it is just right! The best part? It was free since I had all materials on hand!
