This week's featured shop and item...

Cappuccino Cup Pincushion, by Stitchuation

Using thrift store finds, Stitchuation repurposed a coffee mug and an old sweater to create this yummy pincushion!  What an adorable sewing aid for any one that sews! Stitchuation is located in Fair Oaks, California and specializes in sturdy bags for every day use.
