How the Guilded Lillies Tewantin celebrated Sewing MAYhem

The end of May saw our group come together with a collection of cowl neck tops and dresses sewn and adapted from various patterns. May was also our birthday month so a splendid celebration lunch was also a feature of our Sewing Mayhem. Most importantly we had a wonderful tutor Carolyn Lorking who guided the group through the construction of a sunhat and some colourful creations were well underway by the close of the meeting!

Teacup Pin Cushions

I've been wanting to make these for ages! They combine my love of vintage, repurposing and scrap busting plus they are pretty cute, if I do say so myself! I whipped these up to sell at the ASG stand at the Sewing, Stitching & Handcraft Fair in SA.

They are really simple to make. I thrifted the teacups (and a cracked Wedgwood pot I found) from local Op shops. Where the cups had saucers, I left the saucers with the cups, they are handy for keeping small bits and bobs. To make the pin cushion & needle 'tea bag' tab, I used some fabric scraps, a little felt, some thin ribbon, hobby fill and tacky glue. All of that came from stash. This tutorial shows you how to go about making them.

We'd love to see you at the Sewing, Stitching & Handcraft Fair! All the details are below:
