Sew and Tell Friday


Phew...i made it in under the wire!!! When i was flea marketing a few weeks ago with my mom i found this sweet little tea cup without a saucer....perfect for a pincushion!!! It has been patiently waiting on its transformation and today i wanted to be sure to get it done so that i could share it. Not hard...not complicated....but still a finish. I went hunting for fabric to use with it and found this Flea Market Fancy fabric by Denyse Schmidt and knew they were going to be a perfect pair!

Head on over to Amy's blog and see what everyone else has finished this week. There is lots of wonderful stuff....oddly Amy and i both did pincushions this week. What a funny coincidence.

Very cute, Leslie! There are several darling pincushions showing and telling today. lol I think it's time I had something nicer than my generic tomato one... LoL

Thanks for sharing! :o)

Evelyn said...

So cute! I love how that fabric looks with the delicate blue of that tea cup. What a great combination!

Shontelle said...

Gorgeous! I might just have to make one.

Beth said...

This is a fabulous idea! I like that if you are moving about the house to stitch something in another room you can just bring your tea cup right along with you! So convenient and so cute too!!! Thanks for sharing!

That FMF matchs perfectly with the tea cup. Might have to join this Show and tell group to get me a bit more motivated.

Sue said...

So cute! You can find odd teacups at thrift stores. Odd as in "by itself" not strange. :)

Lara said...

Very sweet! What a neat little pin cushion... great idea for wee gifts too!

Too cute. Love all these pincushions on display today. The fabric is beautiful. I have heard so much about that line. I can see why everyone loves it. Enjoy your weekend.

Oh, how clever! The fabric and the teacup match perfectly! You did a great job and I'm so glad you shared with us!

Love it!! I have seen a couple of these and really want to do one. My pincushion is too shallow, and I get stuck everytime I pick it up!! I don't think any pin could get me through a tea cup. Plus, I really love tea!! Now I am just waiting for the perfect tea cup to call my name!!!

Blessings,
KT
