I have been doing a tiny bit of sewing lately.
I say a tiny bit because I am no seamstress.
I can't follow a pattern, don't use technical terms and make stuff up as I go.
But when I do sew my simple projects, I lose my pin cushion all the time.
So I made one that attaches to my sewing machine.
scrap of fabric (mine is approximately 3" x 4")
elastic- 2 pieces (approximately 9 inches each)
sew on velcro
needle and thread
I put the right sides of the fabric together,
then put the elastic edge right up to the edge of the fabric.
Then I sewed all the way around the fabric, leaving a 2 inch opening.
Then I turned it right side out and stuffed the cushion until it was tight.
Then I hand stitched the opening closed.
Then I sewing a small square of velcro at the end of each piece of elastic.
It connects in the back of the sewing machine, holds the pin cushion on and
then is removable if needed.
It's so handy to have pins, right where I need them!
