For folks that sew quite a bit, dull needles and pins sure can slow your down or add frustration unnecessarily. Here’s a low cost low tech tip for making a pincushion to help keep your needles and pins sharp – add STEEL WOOL in the center! You can find it at your nearest Dollar Store but you can also stock up via Amazon (affiliate). Quick and simple to make but each time you poke a pin or needle back into your adorable pincushion, you’ll be sharpening them for the next use! Brilliant! See more over at CraftyPod. Love the scrappy fabrics she used to put this one together!
Want to make a sewing kit topper version? You’ll love this DIY mason jar version over at Pink Polka Dot Creations. Makes a great addition to your sewing room or a fun gift for a sewing friend! Fill the jar with sewing supplies or sewing snacks! It takes a lot of energy to pull late night sewing off. 😉
Last but not least, this square embroidered version is adorable! Found here. Again, filled with steel wool you’ll have a resilient shape for your pincushion while also benefitting from sharpening each time you put a needle or pin back in place.
