Inside the cup I've strategically placed styrofoam and covered it with batting to give it that cushion feel. I also weighted the tea cup down with loose rice to stabilize it.
I used Vintage Linen from a wedding dress as the cover and an applique from the same dress is centered on top. I gingerly painted the flower a lavender color to tie in the floral design. In the center of the applique I attached a Vintage iridescent and lavender rhinestone button.
I have NOT attached the cup to the saucer as I will leave that to you or I will happily do it at your request but the cup is pretty sturdy on it's own.
The Saucer is 5 1/2 inches round and the cup is 3 1/2 inches round. On the under side of the cup there is an engraved letter M
This sweet and handy Pin cushion would make a wonderful addition to your home and would be perfect in a sewing room or right next to you on a table...for all to see. Makes a sweet gift too!
