I found a basket of old cups languishing in the sorting area of my local Red Cross shop. Each of them were without companion cups or saucers and one or two have small cracks and unlikely to be sold. I’ve now given six of them a new lease of life as pin cushions. Fun to make and they got the thumbs-up from the HQ visitors last week who had come to see what our craft group was up to.
The large orange pin cushion is filled with half a polystyrene ball and the rest with polyester toy filling. For additional stability I hot-glued a stone or two inside each base and the cushions were then hot-glued to the cup rims along with the trims.
