I have seen sewing rooms that have more pincushions
than would seem necessary, but for the avid sew-er, keeping the same size needles on one cushion means having a pincushion for every size needle. Every sewing room that has needles and pins just never has enough pincushions.
Once your kitty is done with a can of tuna, you can repurpose the tin can into a pincushion
. Derek and Lauren on Design*Sponge take you through the steps necessary to make your unique pincushion. You'll need poly-fil, a small strip of decorative paper
to cover the can, a piece of fabric for your pincushion, and some hot glue to make the fabric stick in the can.
I am wondering how to get the tuna smell out of the can though. Maybe a good soak in vinegar
will do the trick? If you just can't get the smell out, and don't want fishy pincushions, check out my other pincushion post
, and save your nose.
