Jubilee Guards Egg-Cup Pin-Cushion

Around the time of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, we painted a series of pottery items with images of Guards in true British style. We are obsessed with the red, white and blue colour-scheme and the fantastic bus, guard and taxi iconography. With this in mind, we took inspiration from the guards range by Cath Kidston but put our own spin on them.

The problem with our pottery was that we just didn't want to use them and spoil them so, instead, we had to come up with other ways to use them. Whilst browsing on one of our favourite websites, The Makery Online, we came across this adorable, homemade guards egg-cup pin-cushion.
We fell completely in love and it was decided, that we would make our egg-cup into a pin cushion too! It was really simple, we just covered some toy-stuffing with red fabric then glued it into the egg cup. We love it!
