Hi everyone, I am Elizabeth one of the girls at Simple Simon and Co, where I blog with my sister-in-law who has the same name.  Confusing?  Yes, very.  We both love sewing, all things vintage-especially hoarding vintage patterns, and coming up with $5 crafts for $5 Fridays.
Today I have a gift for the seamstress on your Christmas list….that is easy and costs less than $5!  And the seamstress on your gift list will absolutely LOVE this tea cup pincushion and use it everyday!

{ Tea Cup Pincushion }

Here’s what you will need:
* A vintage tea cup (I got mine at a thrift store for $1.00)
* A handful of stuffing
* A scrap of batting or felt
* A scap of fabric for the top of the pincushion
And here’s how you make it:

And ta-dah!  You have your gifts for all your sewers!
Thanks Jamielyn!  What a great round-up of all things Christmas….it has been amazing and I can’t wait for more!

  1. Hi love your teacup pincushion! I had a hard time not having it fall over so I redid mine and added weight to the bottom of the tea cup by putting about a cup of sand in the cup before putting the top on. It helped to stabilize the cup alot. you could also glue the cup to the saucer. thanks! I used a tea cup that my grandmother gave me when she was cleaning out her house before she moved into a retirement home. She was 96 yrs 8 mths when she passsed away last June so it is a very cherished item that I know can use all the time and remember her always!

  2. I have made these sweet pincushions using teacups from my grandmother! Would be great presents for family and sewing friends!

  3. I love this! I’ll hafta make one for myself as well! :]
