I’m one of those people who have straight pins everywhere. It’s a bad habit, I know, but it’s limited to the craft room. Enter at your own risk! When I am sewing something I remove the pins and they pile up next to my machine then get pushed onto the floor.
While I was on Pinterest the other day(a fun site compiled of things you want and will never have, crafts and DIY projects, food porn, and art) and I saw a project for a sewing machine pin cushion. Genius! I don’t know where it came from, but it was easy enough for me not to need instructions.
Here is how you make a pincushion for your sewing machine. This tutorial also can be used to make pillows!
