Teacup Pin Cushion DIY

Tuesday

If you're anything like me, you're always losing sewing pins. My husband is not too fond of this habit either, considering he's stepped on one-too-many forgotten pins. Not that this concept is anything new; I'm certain you've owned countless pin cushions if you take a liking to sewing. But here is a pretty and very simple project to create your very own...

Supplies: polyester plush, teacup cotton fabric. 
Pantry Supplies: Scissors, hot glue gun.

First, stuff the teacup with plush. You'll want to squeeze as much as possible, making it a firm base. Then, cut out a circle about one inch wider than the rim of the teacup. Lastly, glue the fabric to the inside of the cup, securing in the plush.

 I am sure all your house guests will appreciate this project as much as you do. ;) Happy crafting!
