Hey, I feel a little nervous posting about this in this forum because I have pretty limited embroidery skills, but I'm sure you could take the idea and really make it do something.

I was really into the idea of wrist-watch pin cushions and I thought to myself one day, what if you embroidered one to look like a watch face! So here it goes. I wanted to post a full tutorial but apparently because I am new I can't post pictures. I am a little annoyed that this has to be the policy because I was going to make a really great tutorial! But I am sure it is for a good reason.

Here is an example of a completed analog watch.


You start with a bottle cap pin cushion

Then you add a watch band that attaches with velcro


Now you have a perfect canvas for all your embroidery imagination!


Here is a finished digital one:

Hope you enjoy!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Very cool idea! If you wanted to, once you meet the minimum post, you could come back and edit this one to add pictures or any other details.

Now I totally want to make one!

Such a cute idea! I need to make one of these.  I have "normal" pincushions, but I always forget to grab them when I am stitching.  I tend to hold my needle in my mouth or stab it into a corner of my WIP (which invariably falls out and lands in my bed/sofa/chair).  This would be a much safer and cute way to keep my needles handy.
