I intend on making another pincushion, so I pulled two cups to use. I wanted to use the buttons to show through the clear glass and add some color as well. I hunted down every pink colored button I had and even a few cream colored ones.
I measured my cups and added 1/2" seam allowance. Then I sewed and stuffed my circle until it was over-full then sewed it shut. I added buttons on either side for decoration.
Once finished, it just needed to be glued in place. It turned out just like the picture I had in my head and I absolutely love it! I can't wait to make more.
