Teacup Pincushion #2

Remember the teacup pincushion I made for my friend's birthday a little while ago? I have been wanting to make one for myself as well for a while now but I just never found the right teacup... I originally wanted a Halloween one, but when I saw this lovely granny teacup in the charity shop today I just had to have it :) I think it was the purple flower that did it ;) Plus it was only £2 which was quite a steal. I still have the cupcake pincushion of course but as I only put some foam in that it keep falling over when I pull out the pins which is rather annoying. This one is undoubtedly heavier and wont fall over quite as quickly. Check it out, it's really purple!

I really wanted to make this today so the spoon is a little small and I had to re-glue this about three times but all in all I'm quite pleased with it *huge smile* I mean, it's purple!! Ok, I realise I'm a tad obsessed with purple right now... just go with it... One day I will also buy the pretty metallic pins but for now my old ones have to do.

It's been a really creative day so stay tuned for more crafty posts! Now I have to get some sleep, it's the baby shower tomorrow and I have only just finished wrapping the presents... I so hope everything will fit as I have no idea about baby sizing... wish me luck!

UPDATE: My lovely teacup has been featured! So pleased *huge smile*

  4. So cool! Why didn't I think of that? I guess I'll have to look around for a fun teacup to make one for myself. Thanks for sharing this project.

  5. MJ-
    What a sweet take on a pin cushion. I've been in a bit of a purple phase too. The other day, I rocked a purple headband, while carrying a purple waterbottle and a purple yoga mat. It wasn't intentional!


    If you have a moment today, please share this with my readers @Creative Juice Thursday Hope to see you there!

  7. Very pretty. Love how nicely your fabric goes with the flowers.

    I bought a cup to make one of these and ended up using it for tea.
