Quick Pincushion

My friend loves canned frosting, so I keep the cans for all kinds of things. If you have a big sewing project, but don't have a pincushion, or just want a larger and better one, try this.


You simply grab a ball of yarn that you no longer need, and stuff it into a container like this frosting one, an old mug, a coffee can, or Crystal Light tube. Voila! Instant pin cushion.

Yarn is great for pins, as they slide through the fibers so easily. You can even keep smaller knitting needles in there, as there is plenty of room for the tips and won't make the cup fall.
