{teacup} pincushion

What you'll need:
- teacup
- spray paint (unless your teacup is already the color you want)
- fabric scrap (size of a dinner plate)
- needle + thread
- poly fil
- hot glue

Step 1. Find your teacup and spray paint it desired color. I found this one at the thrift store for $.75 :)

Step 2. Cut out your fabric (I had some left over from my tote :) I traced a dinner plate to get this size, but you'll want it 3-4 inches larger than your cup.

Step 3. Do a large running stitch about a 1/2 inch from the edge of the fabric. Then fill it with the poly fil. Tighten the thread and close off with a few stitches that go all the way through.

Step 4. Try in your puff before you put the glue in.. you might need to twist/fold some of the extra fabric that will be the bottom. Next part you'll have to be fast, unless you use another type of glue that gives you more working time. Put some hot glue in the bottom and sides of cup and place cushion where you want it. Hold until the glue cools a little. There you have it!

Cute and inexpensive gift idea for mother's day ;)
