Use for pins and needles. Be careful to not put them too far in. If you think you might start to poke your hand, simply glue a small circle of felt to the back where it will protect your skin.

Does anyone know how to make one of these without crocheting?
I am the creator and yes, I can help with that.
One of the cool things about our mom's generation is, they made do with things they had. My mom used to make needle fobs using coffee, and I actually submitted an idea here using coffee. If you sew, you can make a rectangle into a square by folding it in half, sewing up two sides, and filling it with coffee or sand as you close up the third.
Get some felt scraps, cut a piece just big enough to hold the band on with, then hot glue it to the bottome side of the square. You will have a bit heavier, but cool wrist band too. It will keep your needles and pins sharp.
Or, you can get a friend to make you two circles and you will have a cool thing to keep your pins handy and your work table uncluttered. Good luck!

And, if you have a friend who crochets, this is fun, too. http://www.thri … 8225333.tip.html
