    I finished one this morning from a small dish I found at Goodwill for 49 cents. here are the other 3 sets I found for 1.49 each. I love the cup with the silver filigree.

    Those are really cute! I'd probably put it on a table and my darn cats would knock it off and break it :shock: ....but I love them, of course I love the old tea cups too. Oh that reminds me...I had forgotten that I have my Mom's antique tea cup collection up in my attic..!!!

    I'm using good old polyfill stuffing. I'd love to find the emery powder that keeps pins sharp but I can't find it anywhere.

    Have some antique cups, but would be afraid to use those, so guess I need to go to Goodwill too. Maybe when and if I have a real sewing room, I will make some - more for display than use. Very nice idea though.

    Well, the finished one in the dish has to be re-done. Nitwit the Terrible (my cat) got hold of it in the night, pulled the pincushion out of the dish and dropped it in the sump pump. He also got caught stealing my bag of puffy peppermint candies this morning. That's just not right.

    he's a little hellion this morning. I guess his little hoo-haw's are starting to kick out the testosterone. Me thinks he's going to be spending the day in his cage contemplating his transgressions against pincushions and Christmas candy.

    LOL
    Yea, she likes to do things like that. Heck, there's a bunch that like to bring old threads up to "wet our appetite" lol

    Tippy....check out thrift stores. Best place to find teacups.

    How freaky is this.....

    helped a mate move house over the weekend, and she was about to throw out two teacups and saucers. I grabbed them, they were too cute to biff, but had no idea what to do with them.

    Now..... all I need is someone to tell me how these are made! :-)

    Oh this is so nice! Are they going to be gifts or sold? I bought a cup and saucer to do this with as a gift, but, the painted pattern inside was so nice, I just gave her the set instead. LoL!

    I have seen these made into little night light lamps too. Good for you that you acted on this idea. I know everyone is going to love it.

    Have you ever read the book," Making Fabulous Pincushions", by Jo Packman? Anyone who sews would love this book.
