    from the pattern: "Buttons of different colors were sewn to help me keep my needles organized since I do different kinds of needlework. That way, I keep all the needles for one purpose at the same location using the color coded buttons:"

    Such a wonderful idea to do this!!! I love the entire teacup idea. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for the link, Crafty Bear! I collect old tea cups, so now I know when I see a cup that I like that has a flaw in it (like a crack), I don't have to bypass it! Great idea!!

    Terrific Idea .... I'm also thinking old creams and sugars!

    The possibilities are endless!

    Thanks for the link. Now I know what to do with all the old mugs/teacups I don't use and just can't get rid of! :lol:

    I need to look around the house to see what else I can convert to sewing notions.

    I made one for my mom from a small limoges china basket that I bought at Goodwill. I'll have to remember to take a picture of it, it's so pretty.

    What a great idea. I have a lot of teacups that just sit in a box in the garage.

    yes, get your tea cups and start making cute pincushions, also would be great for quilt guild favors at meetings

    Darn! found a really cute cup and saucer at the thrift shop and when I got home, it was chipped. The woman didn't wrap it very well. Oh well... it was only $1 and I found some other neat things too. Next time! : (

    you will have fun, go ahead and use it and maybe cover up the chip spot with a small pincushion like the strawberry shape one to cover up the chip
