Use Emery Particles for Pin Cushion

Sewers will love this creative idea. You can buy emery particles for about $6.00 a cup and make your own needle and pin cushion to keep your needles and pins sharp. Straying away from the old fashioned pincushions with steel wool in them makes this project a lot easier to deal with. You can make them in any size you wish and any fabric that suits your eye. Make sure you have 2 layers of cloth so none of your particles come through the cloth. A cup of emery will go a long way so why not make several pin and needle cushions to give as gifts.

This is a great idea, but coffee is just as good and much cheaper. Besides, I love the scent after it's lost it's "coffee flavor"!

Yes, where to buy the emery particles? I've wanted to do this for ages, but didn't know where to look. Would love to try it!
