Fun notions project…
When my grandfather passed away mom and dad brought me back a cup and saucer they found in one of Grampa’s cabinets. The painted blueberries reminded mom of when we went blueberry picking one morning while we were visiting, this past summer.
Well I decided I would use this cup and saucer to make my little notions holder and it was super easy.
All you need to do is attach some small magnets to the bottom of the saucer using E6000 as directed on their package. Once the magnets were attached I attached the tea cup to the saucer using E6000 as well. I set a book on top of the tea cup over night allowing the adhesive to dry and the next morning my notions holder was ready for use.
I placed embroidery floss, sewing needles and buttons in the tea cup as well as some straight pins onto the saucer that are kept in place with the magnets. Now, I have everything at an arms reach. I love how it looks sitting on the shelf in my scraproom and reminds me of Grampa and the fun Mom and I had picking blueberries each time I see it.
I think Grampa would be pleased that I re-purposed his tea cup and saucer in this manner.
