So when I saw this tutorial on how to make a tea cup pincushion on the blog at Sew Over It, I thought I had to make one of my own.
I popped into a local charity shop at lunchtime, and picked up this sweet vintage teacup for £2. I chose a white fabric from my stash as anything patterned looked a bit busy.
I followed the instructions on Sew Over It's blog, and it was a super speedy make!
I think I might be making a few more, they would make great gifts for stitchy friends or vintage lovers.
I'm also trying to improve my photography as I don't think the pictures that I take do my sewing enough justice! I took these shots in natural daylight and tried out lots of angles. I also used picmonkey to crop the images. The background fabric is something that I have in my stash, waiting to be turned into something! Would love to hear any good photography tips!
