A Little Teacup Pincushion

Good Morning and Happy 4th of July!!!!!!!!!!!!!!We are headed out to our camp and I thought that I would finish up my little blog before we head out.  Sounds like we will have a nice weekend and a busy one.  Well, anyways I had this vintage teacup that was missing its saucer but I thought that this cup was so pretty and I didn't want to throw it away, so I decided to make it into a little pincushion.  Here is the before picture:

I had this pretty floral material in my stash and I thought that the colors would accentuate the little teacup.
I also decided that I needed a little bit or rickrack to add to the finished result.

I hot glued some small pieces of foam to the bottom of the inside of the teacup.  When I liked the rounded amount, I than covered the foam with battening, a few pieces of that.  I made a small little ruffle of the material and attached the ruffle to a piece of lace.  I than glued that to the inside of the teacup along the edge of the rim.  I than made a larger circle of the material and slightly hand gathered the edges and pulled it to the desired size and hot-glued that on top and along the edges of the rim of the teacup.
When that was dried and set I hot-glued the edges of the top with the rick rack, just to make a nice finished edge.
So, what do you think about my little teacup pincushion?
Until next time, Dianne........................
