Hide a Pincushion and Tools in Plain Site!
Are you short on storage space and need a caddy for pins and hand sewing tools that will look nice on a shelf? Or does you cat tend to bat at your pincushion and you need to keep it out of site?
This charming solution is a clever way to hide pins and sewing tools in plain site. A vintage tea pot can be easily converted into a charming sewing caddy.
The pincushion is tucked inside the lid while the pot itself is great for small tools. Plus, it’s super easy to make and will finish up quickly.
Look for a vintage teapot at resale shops, yard sales and other inexpensive sources. You’re sure to find something you love for a very low price.
Sadie Seasongoods has written an excellent tutorial for putting the caddy together.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article).
