I found this pincushion on The Chickadee Feeder and thought how useful it is for a handsewer.
If you do a lot of handsewing like I do, it is a perfect holder for your threads and pins. And it is so simple to make from two 9 1/2 inch circles of quilted fabric and some seam binding.
You can find the directions here. http://thechickadeefeeder.xanga.com/734796052/item/
