I wanted to make a pin cushion which my baby boy wouldn’t be able to get to and hurt himself with, but also one I could see the needles and pins easily when I needed to. I had an idea, and got a clean clippy lid type jar and the first bit of scrap fabric I could find.
Using the principal of guestimation, I drew a circle round a bowl I had to hand and cut it out.
Then you just pop your cushion into the bottom of the jar, glue it down if you want, and you can add your pins, then lock them safely away. Ok, I would imagine you could make a more complicated and prettier pin cushion by cutting a circle to the size of the base of the jar, and then cutting out segments all in a pretty fabric, but then I was in a bit of a hurry and this is a quick and easy make. But I might have a go at one when I have more time, now that I’ve somewhere safe to keep my pins!
