My first post! Hallo!

I have recently discovered how much fun sewing is but did not have a decent pin cushion yet. So yesterday after cutting off a few inches from the legs of an old pair of jeans, the leftover material gave me an idea.
So voil! A pin cushion that is always right where I need it. Also, I like it so much that it makes me want to sew even more.

Leftover denim that closes with a bit of velcro, lined in pink to look prettier, with an old candy tin attached (I figured a metal container would be a good idea so I don't accidentally run any pins into my skin...). The cushion is stuffed with some leftover foam rubber covered with the same pink material.

Love the idea of using a candy container. I know I'd poke myself if I didn't make one with that. I poke myself enough as it is  Tongue
