1. Using the templates, cut out your shapes and place them together, ready to stitch.
2. With white thread, stitch the tea and the pink cheeks to the teacup with running stitch.
3. Using black thread, stitch on the mouth, the beady black eyes, adding eyelashes as you go.
4. Pin your teacup onto a piece of white felt, and carefully cut around the edge.
5. Using the template provided, cut out the pink strip, and pass through the keyring.
6. Fold the pink strip with the keyring, and sandwich between the teacup and white felt back, pinning it to secure in place.
7. With white thread, starting at one side of the bottom of the teacup, sew around your teacup, remembering to stitch around the handle. When you get to the other side, leave a gap to poke in a small amount of stuffing.
8. Once you are happy with the way your teacup is padded, stitch up the remaining gap. Your teacup is ready to add to your keys!
