This is a quick and easy make and is a fun ‘upcycling’ way of using an old china tea cup
What you will need:
- Vintage tea cup
- Any fabric, we have used some pink gingham
- A small button
- Thin ribbon
- Sewing machine
Fold your strip of fabric in half and draw around your tea cup with some tailor chalk, or a pencil. Pop a pin in place and then cut around the circle.
With your two circles you need to place the lace carefully in between the two pieces of fabric. Use a pin and gradually go around the circle gathering it up as you go.
Machine around the circle, being careful when you go over the pins. Leave a gap of around 2 inches and break off the cotton.
Turn the fabric inside out to reveal the lacy circle and the stuff the insides with your stuffing.
Finish off by hand, sewing up the hole and making sure the lace gets tucked into as well.
Make a bow with your thin ribbon and attach to the middle of your pin cushion using a needle and thread
Thread a button through the cotton and finish off attaching it.
