Pincushion Tea Cup
These Upcycled Teacups have been handcrafted to be used as pincusions. The top layer of fabric is linen for durability and machine cross stitched for beauty. Under which is a layer of cotton batting for easy piercing. And finally, a layer of walnut shells to sharpen the tips of the pins. Therefore not recommended for ballpoint sewing machine needles.
The cup and saucer have been glued together. They have a rare earth magnet at the base of the cup to hold a pair of snips just at the right position for an easy grasp. Included is a lovely flower pin that is easy to grip.
Thoughtfully made by Madonna Oliver.
