Pincushion patterns – our cup of tea

There’s nothing quite like getting behind the sewing machine, hot cup of tea in hand, ready for a good stitching session. Only, our brew never stay warm long enough, by the time we go to inhale sip our tea it’s ice cold. Sound familiar? We’ve found just the make that’ll serve as a reminder to drink it while it’s hot. Here’s what you’ll need to make the teapot pincushion…


1 fat quarter fabric
1 fat quarter medium weight iron-on interfacing
Polyester fibre fill
Piece of cardboard
Rice/beans/ lentils (or something similar- used to help weigh base of pincushion… optional)
Needle, scissors, thread
Felt for flower (optional)
Pom pom for centre of felt flower (optional)
