I've been coveting one of these for months and finally got around to making one.  I found a great tutorial online that I altered slightly.  I folded the straps differently so there were no exposed edges.  I also didn't have Velcro so my straps are permanently attached.  I switched it around so there are no exposed seams on the lining.  I didn't have package strapping, so I used zip-ties.
Things I would change next time: I would either use Velcro, or shorten the straps to accommodate for not having it.  I would not top stitch around the pin cushion (ie, suck it up and hand stitch the opening).
I think I am really going to get good use out of this pin cushion - I really dig it.
On to the pics.
