Fun notions project…

Feb 22, 2011

While I was on Pin­ter­est look­ing at all the won­der­ful pho­tos post­ed I came across this super cute project. I thought it was such an awe­some idea and knew I had to make one.

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.
