If you’d like to make the teacup exactly match our teapot from earlier this week, you can use this motif instead.  IMG_0386Print out your motif and trace it with your Sharpie. IMG_0389Trace the teacup onto your fabric. IMG_0390Start with the light pink thread and Stem/Outline Stitch around the top of the cup. IMG_0393Continue down the sides of the cup. IMG_0396Finish up the cup by stitching the handle. IMG_0397Now, use the yellow thread to Back Stitch the lemon slice. IMG_0402Use the dark pink thread to Back Stitch the saucer.

Once the saucer is stitched, the project is complete! IMG_0411So cute! IMG_0580They look so good together!!

I love them!

Happy Crafting! Bow signature pink
