Have you ever wanted to make Tea Cup Pin Cushions? I am inspired to make a pin cushion after spotting so many cute teacup pincushion ideas. This is such a fun way to upcycle old teacups but, you can use a new one too. This is a pretty, and easy way to store sewing pins, needles, and safety pins… Keeping your sewing notions handy while sewing. 

Grab your supplies at yard sales, thrift shops, look at your grandma’s stash or purchase the sewing notions you need. Make one for a handmade gift idea or decorate your sewing room with it until your pincushion is needed.
