Enjoy, with a nice cup of hot tea! ^.^
I was trying to find a use for all these fruit sauce cups I had, and thought they kind of looked like cupcake bottoms.So I made them into pincushions!
Here I used a piece of vintage fabric I was saving for a while cause I love the print..but you can also use felt :)
