Pink Saturday

Hello everyone! This is my first Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/. I wanted to share with you the teacup pincushions I made a few yrs ago. I found the idea in the Romantic Homes magazine, and I just fell in love with them. I have seen many other items used to make these also, such as a baby shoe, or a creamer, just use your imagination. The flowers, made from wired ribbon, I learned to make from a book my mother in law had given me. Although I couldn't seem to follow their directions exactly to make them, I fiddled around with them until I got them the way I wanted them to look. What makes it fun is, you can embellish them with whatever you wish. Vintage buttons, and pieces of vintage jewelry, lace, and charms. I found this pair of old sewing scissors at a garage sale, and just set them on the saucer.








This little one is my favorite one. The cup is just so cute! I found this little bone china cup in an antique shop for $4.00. It is stamped Germany on the bottom, so I grabbed it up! These flowers I made with just some organdy ribbon, and used a gathering stitch, until it resembled a circle.
I was planning to sell them on e-bay, but I decided to keep them. Thanks for coming by and visiting!
