Making a Magnetic Pin Cushion

How to make your own magnetic pin cushions? I am always sewing and using straight pins for patterns etc. While I have plenty of fabric pin cushions, I find I am always dropping the pins and finding them later when I get stuck with them painfully. I have seen the magnetic pin cushions in stores that cost $10-$15 each. I would like to know of a way to make my own even in different sizes, so I do not have to keep up with the pins so much. If anyone has any ideas for making these magnetic ones I'd love to hear about them! :) Thanks!

in a small jar or other container like margarine bowl or baby food jar, tape or glue a magnet inside the lid & presto ! There you have it !

Do not put a magnetic pin dish near a computerized sewing machine it will ruin the program and the machine.
