Mother’s Day  Craft for Kids: Tea Cup Pin Cushion

Supplies needed:
Supplies for Mother's Day Craft for Kids: DIY Mother's Day Tea Cup Pin Cushion

  • A small teacup (affiliate link) and saucer (if you don’t have one just check out your local thrift store or even dollar store for a simple cup and saucer set.)
  • Poly stuffing (affiliate link) or even fabric shredding will suffice (you can use scraps you already have!)
  • 6 inch circle of coordinating cotton mid weight fabric
  • Needle
  • Thread
  • Hot glue gun
  • Sewing push pins

Directions for this cute Mother’s Day craft for kids:
1. Thread your needle, no knot, and sew a big running stitch all around the wrong side perimeter of the circle of fabric. Leave a long tail so you don’t pull your thread through.

2. Gather your circle of fabric into a little pouch, leaving a small hole to stuff through, and tie off the ends securely.

3. Stuff  until it’s nice and smooth.

4. Using small pieces of stuffing will make this look nicer. Squash it around to make it look even.

5. Apply hot glue in the bottom and sides of your cup. Squash your pincushion down firmly into the glue. Use caution as glue will be hot!

6. Put some coordinating pins in it and you are done!

As you can see, since hot glue and pins are used, you will want to supervise this craft for kids very closely.

You can add more embellishments such as buttons or rick rack if you wish. Dress this piece up as much as you wish or leave plain. When the glue has had time to set, your cup and saucer is complete and ready for gift giving. I do not even think you need to wrap these as they are attractive enough just as they are!

You can pair your tea cup pin cushion with other sewing notions for gift giving or just give as it is. It is so fun and whimsical, and can be left out as a decorative display piece when not in use. The recipient is sure to find it charming and practical, and you will be sure to find it easy to whip up!

Give a charming, homemade gift from the heart and hands this year! Mom is sure to love it, and so will your budget!

Happy crafting!
