Hello again everyone!
Oh no, it's Friday! The last day of my holidays!! And of course I stayed home the whole week and did not take advantage of the crowdless shops during work hours, but preferred to stay dry and warm rather than being outside in the awful weather we're having. So time to do some crafting :)
Do you remember this teacup I bought a few months ago during my thrift shopping spree?
I bought it to make a pincushion for a friend. See, we were in Liberty's a while back and I saw that they were selling teacup pincushions for like £27!!! Thats about $45 for anyone not living in the UK. Now that is a LOT! Granted, their cups were better looking than mine but mine definitely has the cute factor :)
So I added some baby blue felt to match the bows on the cup and bought some pearl white sewing pins as well to completely the look. I even got a pretty teaspoon and glued that on it as well :) I did consider brownish felt to give the coffee look but all it did was make it look awful and old, so the blue is better. The pins were a good idea as my friend is very practical and owns only normal pins. As I love the coloured ones, I thought she needed some pretty pins also :) The result? Here it is!
I glued the cup onto the plate with Mod Podge, which works much better than my gluegun for this type of things :) I glued the spoon onto the plate as well.
Dont you just love it? I know I do! All I need now is to find some sort of witchy teacup and make one for myself also :) Now let's hope my friend doesnt read this before I have a chance to give this to her...
On a final note: just a quick reminder that my CSN giveaway ends at midnight tonight UK time so if you still want to enter, hurry up! *yawn* back to my sofa now... Holidays can make you so sleepy! LOL
