I did mine a little bit differently. Here's the tutorial.
The tea cup has a lid; nice if you take your pincushion from room to room, or in Mother's case, she just has one in every room.
I want the pinning surface to be stronger then just stuffing. I bought a package of 2 circular Styrofoam pieces at the dollar store, for $1.
Place the cup slightly over the edge and traced it. With an exacto knife cut around the traced circle. Then cut a smaller one to glue to the bottom of the first circle.
Cut a circle from the fabric I was using for the pincushion.
Approx 7" around.
Put a little stuffing and the styrofoam pieces on the fabric.
Sew all the way around the outside of the fabric and pull the string tight.
Stitch around several times to get it as tight as possible.
Use hot glue to secure the pincushion to the bottom of the tin cup.
Happy Mother's Day!
Thank you for stopping by.
