Sewing Room Accessory

I’m not the neatest person when it comes to working in my sewing room and one of the biggest reason why I don’t let my children play in the sewing room is because of the sewing pins I leave lying around or some which have fallen on the floor.

When I’m sewing and pulling out the pins as I near them, I’d just put them on the table if my pin cushions are out of reach. Arwen is now at the table height where she’d try and grab anything which is in her reach. I’ve seen dress makers having pin cushion wristband. I’ve thought of that but never come around to making one myself until I saw this cute pin cushion ring.

I happen to have an empty mineral water bottle. Took the cap for this project, stuffed it with some left over batting and used my scraps to cover it. It’s very clever to have the cap for the base as you won’t prick yourself with the pins. The band is made of elastic band to the size of my finger. You can find the tutorial

Easy peasy. Fancy making one yourself?
