These are handy if you find yourself walking around while working on sewing projects. All you need is a scrap of fabric, a fistful of stuffing, a scrap of elastic, and a bottle cap. I used a frappucino lid. Make sure the elastic can stretch to fit over your hand. All I did was sew the elastic together to make a loop, then hot glue the cap onto it. Cut a small square of fabric then wrap it around the stuffing and sew it shut to make a mini pillow. Then hot glue it into the cap. VOILA!
If you make it too big, just move it up your forearm. And I'm sure you could use other glues, I just have a hot glue fetish.

Very nice and very handy!  What kind of stuffing did you use?

i used standard white stuffing. I don't remember the brand name-- Polyfil? Next time I may use saw dust. It'll probably be messier though. Tongue

wow, I just sat down to post about my wrist pincushion (wondering, where should I put such a post) when I found your post.  So here's mine:

It's not quite so professional, I just made it quite fat so the needles couldn't reach down and prick my tender wrist.  I like your idea, and I filled mine with that white stuffing crap too. and sewed the elastic into the side seams.

I can't say enough good things about having one of these gizmos.

I think the bottle cap is a really good idea to keep the pins from going through. This is now on my to do list. Thanks.

Jesus loves me, this I know.

oh very stylish!  Cheesy  I like the purple. I needed one so bad because I switch rooms to cut fabric, then I always look around for my pin cushion and alas, it is in the other room. I wasted like 20 minutes a day just walking back and forth for my cushion!

this is such a great idea, i love the fact that the lid stops the pins from pricking my arm. nice job.
