Tart Up Your Sewing Room

Hold on to your hats! I have gotten addicted to making teacup pincushions. I made one for an apron swap I am in right now and it was so fun I made more. A LOT more. So I am going to start selling them in my online Tart Deco store on etsy.




This teacup is especially wonderful because it has 3 claw feet. I made the cushion smaller to see the flower detail inside the rim of the cup. The pink flower is included, but not attached.





Sherbert Tart

A candy-colored cushion with handmade ribbon flower and glass raspberry affixed on top. Comes with decorative paper flowers, not attached. There is a lovely ornamental pedestal bottom on the teacup.





This is my favorite so far and the most unusual. A half-moon pin cushion of red velvet and vintage lace allows a flower detail to peek out from the inside of this bone china teacup. The cup also has a pedestal bottom that fits gently into the matching saucer.




All the pincushions come with matching saucers that are not attached, but can be at your request. To lay claim to one of the above lovelies visit my Tart Deco etsy shop or click on the title of each pincusion for a direct link.
