Item details

I´m away from my studio for a few days. All orders will be shipped on April 10th.

This cute pincushion is made from a portuguese vintage coffee cup and saucer. It displays a courting couple, both in the cup and in the saucer.

I make this pincushions with cups that have some flaws, sometimes little cracks or chips, or glazing defects and crazing. Altough they are not in the best condition for you morning expresso, they gain a new life, away from the landfill, in your sewing room. They are ecofriendly, and really cute.

This little cup shows some wear in the golden rim and a small chip near the handle, in the back. The brown floral fabric matches perfectly the image of the courting couple in the front. The saucer is glued to the cup and it´s perfect to put sewing odds and ends.

Height: 8cm (aprox. 3in)
Diameter: Cup Aprox. 6cm (2 1/4in), Saucer12cm (4 3/4in)

Colours may look different in different monitors.

The pincushion is ready made and will be shipped in 1-2 business days. All orders are shipped first class international with tracking. Shipping overcharges over €1 will be refunded as soon as the order is shipped.
