I have needed a pin cushion for awhile now and couldn't bring myself to go buy an ugly tomato one (no offense to all you out there sewing with a tomato pin cushion...Ha!) So I decided to search it out.. Here are some of the ones I liked and I decided to make a teacup pin cushion. It took all of about 10 minutes so I don't know why it took me so long to buck up and make one. I LOVE having it, so convenient!
Heather Bailey's fresh picked cushions are to die for cute
but I already had the goods to make this one from mmmcrafts so this was the one I chose and I'm so glad I did! This was so easy and would be a perfect gift for the sewer in your life (who wouldn't love a cutefied pin cushion?!)
Cut a circle that is at least double the size of your teacup. Hand sew a stitch around the edge and pull (just like a yo-yo) Fill the circle with batting, and hot glue to your teacup. Yup, it's that easy. Maybe I should make a whole army of them, just in case :) Kidding. Kind of. Anyways, go ahead and make yourself a place of your own to put all of those pins you have lying around (Or update that tomato!)
