When I found this vintage teapot at the thrift store, I decided to turn it into a handy little caddy to stow away sewing supplies. And the lid was the PERFECT size for a secret pin cushion.

To make the pincushion, I traced the inner lip of the lid on some cardboard.
I then used fabric and crafting fiberfill to create the pincushion.

When it was finished, I gently tucked it inside the lid! Ta-da...hidden pincushion. Now, when I'm sewing, I can keep the pincushion upside down on the teapot...

And then turn it right-side up when I'm done! This keeps the pins safe and secure.

    Great idea....the teapot is nice to set anywhere. If need to do a quick fix you don't have to get out the larger sewing box. LOVE IT!

    I LOVE this idea!!! This would be wonderful to use when I'm doing some hand sewing or embroidery in the evenings, since it could sit out in the living room and look pretty.

    This has got to be the best repurpose for a teapot I have ever seen! Thank you for this idea

    The topic is, Hold onto broken teacups and teapots etc. Not one of the pieces, although they are very pretty and great ideas, look to be broken.

    I turned a broken teapot into a yarn bowl - no more balls of yarn for the kittens to steal :D Just thread the end of the yarn through the spout
