I just wanted to share this fun project with you. I made one of these for a friend of mine and decided that "maybe I should make one for myself." And so I did.

Want to make one yourself?
This is what you need:
-a tea cup
-a piece of fabric
-a styrofoam ball
-a few scraps of batting
-thread and needle
-a gule gun and glue stick

Step 1
place the cup upside down on the fabric and draw a circle about four inches bigger than the cup. Cut the circle out.

Step 2
Turn the fabric wrong side up. Place the scraps of batting on the fabric. Then put the foam ball ontop of the batting.

Step 3
Sew the fabric closed around the ball and batting. I sewed it like I would sew a yoyo (running stich, then pull it closed).

Step 4
Once you finished with your the fabric section put it aside, but keep it close.

Get your glue gun ready. Once its hot glue the bottom and rim of your cup. After its glued push your fabric ball into it and hold. When the glue is dry your done.

I do hope you enjoy making your own.

Till next time, have fun sewing
