Now that I've started sewing I really see the use for a pin cushion. At first I thought I'd just use the little container my pins came in. Usually that works fine, until I'm reaching in to grab a bunch and I stab myself in the finger. So I thought I'd make a pin cushion. I found this little guy and used that as my inspiration. I left off the button and instead of filling it with fluff I used rice to weigh it down to make it a little easier to use.
Basically, just patch together some small pieces (2.5x2.5 squares in this one, but you could probably adjust the size to your liking) and once you've got a 2x2 square sew together like you would a pillow. Flip it inside out then stuff and sew up the hole.
Quick and easy and pretty cheap too since I already had these fabrics on hand.
