The Evolution of a teacup - series 2

Welcome once again, dear readers as we follow Jodie, the ever-optimistic crafter, in her continuing search for the perfect teacup.

Today saw our much harangued sewer delve once again into the teacup debacle that she has been studiously ignoring for a week.
This teacup dear readers in now in its 9th incarnation.

At this point things are looking good, but what you can't see readers, is the four different bases sewn and unpicked and the three different handles .

At the right angle, you can however, see the pin!

  1. Well it looks great, but you need a few of them scattered about so they look they grew there like some exotic teacup and saucer plant. The handle on this one looks great.

    You could leave the base off and just stitch the cup to the saucer!! A tricksy teacup.

  5. I smiled as soon as I saw your post title on bloglines, guessing what a delight was in store. I especially like the little button detail under the handle. What a clever chook you are.
    I have the most inappropriate security word to verify: "angst"

  7. The patchwork effect is exquisite! Do you ever want to just chop things up and chuck them away after unpicking so many times? You must have the patience of a saint...and then some!

  17. I think it looks great.. though I'm no expert at sewing, I have one robot embroidered cushion and a scrap owl to my name, or to my blog whichever you prefer.

    I like the handle on this and I think they would look really cute stacked up together.. in a haphazard Mad Hatter's tea party sort of way... but thats just me..

  37. It is really sweet Jodie. I love it. Do you plan on putting out a pattern for these? I'd love to make one. I love how you've attached the handle with the button. The cup and saucer is such a great idea.

  38. I do like the thinner handle! Makes your cup look more posh, bone china compared to stoneware if you will.
