Months ago I spotted this little tea cup at Goodwill. I snatched it up right away as it reminded me of my dear friend who is a horse lover. I knew I wanted to add it to her birthday gifts, but also knew I wanted to make it into something extra special, snazz it up a little.
In a sudden burst of inspiration I grabbed some wool felt and my jar of vintage ric-rac and got to work. I quickly finished the pretty pin cushion and topped it with pearly pink pins.
There's something about a pretty pincushion that makes me smile. I love making the every day utilitarian object beautiful. If you're like me, pincushions are one of those every day things. I have and need lots of them. One next to each sewing machine, one next to my cutting mat, and one on my ironing board. Now I'm thinking I need one to keep on my coffee table for hand sewing projects!
