Vintage Teapot Sewing Caddy With Hidden Pincushion

373,080 Views
If you like to sew but have curious pets, then you need this hidden pincushion in your life!
And if you want the complete full tutorial with all of the steps, make sure you click over to my original post!
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.
Curious about the full tutorial? Please click over to my original post for all the steps and materials/tools that I used!

    I really love this! I sew and I am always hunting for my pin cushions while I am sewing as they are the tomatoes and roll everywhere! This is cute and looks very stable, also I can throw babbles inside that pertain to what I am working on! What a fantastic idea!!

    My mom collected tea sets and I learned a lot about crafting, sewing and decorating from her, so I would love to make one of those and have next to my sewing machine. Each time I look at I will remember all she left for me to past on to my daughters. So I am going to keep a lookout for tea pots at the thrift shop near me.

    What an awesome idea. Love this!!! Would be perfect for leaving it sit out by my sewing machine at the kitchen table instead of the sewing basket & I love teapots. Thanks for sharing.

    this would make a great gift for the person who don't sew but needs to put a button back on - a safety-pin... as well as seamstress. I think I will do it for my daughter-in-law who can never find her quick fix sewing things -- everything she needs in one spot! This is just adorable- thank you for sharing!

    So glad that beautiful tea pot gets to stay around as a lovely (& still useful) object. What a sweet gift for any sewer...especially beginners. A special way to pass on the legacy of home keeping!
