Always and forever, against all advice both off and online, I have kept my needles in my pincushions. I have made needle cases and been gifted needle cases and, really, I think needle cases are a great idea. From time to time, I’ve even resolved to use them. But always I revert back because it’s just so much quicker and easier to pop a needle into or pull a needle out of a pincushion. And, contrary to all the cautions I’ve heard, they don’t disappear or cause injury or who knows what else. Sometimes, though, they can be hard to see well amongst the pins so, I decided to make a shallow cushion especially for needles. I basically filled a tin lid with toy stuffing and covered it with fabric, as shown in the progress picture below.
I used a scrap of the curtain fabric left over from my Dottie Angel dress and the Makery chair.
And I still have a few scraps left…
