My pincushion

Well, this went easier than I expected. I gathered all my supplies to go with the vision I had in my head.

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.

That is a cool idea for a cup pincushion. I've seen plenty using teacups but not one using a glass cup and it is so pretty. And, the glass headed pins, they just finish it off nicely. Well done.

Great pincushion! I like that the cup is clear, adds a bit of interest to the pincushion.

The pin cushion in the clear glass is really neat. I have both of my g'mas dishes and we don't use the cups so a pin cushion would be cool from them. (wish they were see thru)
