When a neighbor's child showed up at my door just before Passover with all of the things they didn't want, but thought I might, this little tea cup was tucked in there, and I immediately thought, ah yes, pin cushion or candle? And now you know the answer: tea cup pincushion! It really is just as cute as can be, and useful to boot! You can glue the cup to the plate, or better yet, don', as the plate becomes a useful catchall when you are in the middle of a sewing project. Want to make one? It is really so very simple, love that!
