Teacup Pincushions: Ivory, Gold, and Jade Ribbon-Flower Pincushioncomments (0) September 20th, 2008 in gallery
I love using "thrift shop treasures" to create fun and whimsical gifts and garments. My teacup pincushions have been designed using vintage teacups, with a coordinating fabric pincushion inserted into the top of each cup, and then embellished with ribbon and / fabric flowers, buttons, beads, gems, and charms. When the pincushion is finished, I always attach it securely to the saucer so that it can be used to hold scissors, thimble, needles or pins. The finishing touch is to include several beaded stick pins to give it that perfect vintage look! They are easy to make, and are a perfect gift for mother, grandmother, sister or aunt for any special day.
I would like to win this challenge because my designs offer so many possibilities and creative opportunities for other "designing minds." I have written several tutorials on creating vintage pincushions, as well as applique patterns, and I love inspiring creativity in others. My teacup pincushions are so easy and so fun . . . . . and so charming!
