I recently found these vintage pin cushions for a quarter each. I love the look of these. In fact, I grew up using one very similar to these. But totally impractical. How many of you would PAINStakingly search for lost needles and invariably find one the hard way? Ya, me too. Whoever thought these would make handy pin cushions didn't store their needles in them. SO I will not be sticking my needles in these either... just my fancy sewing pins.
And speaking of needles, have you discovered the The Needle Nest yet? Talk about handy! The perfect container in which to store your favorite needles. Thanks Ginny! I immediately went to Michael's and bought one.
