30:60 Project 5: The Matching Pincushion

Friends, once I saw how cute the denim bowl looked on my sewing table, I knew that I needed a matching pincushion.

I stumbled on this great tutorial via Pinterest, and I knew it would be perfect for my leftover scrap pieces.  I used a button from my stash, added some thread, and voila!  A pincushion with more surface area than my last one.

Who knows?  Maybe I have enough scraps to cover my sewing box :)

Thank you for sharing all of your suggestions on organizing!  I'm thinking I need to invest in some jars, cans, and a fabulous wooden tray like Dottie Doodle has :)  It's nice to know I'm not alone in my attempts to control the tornado that hits my sewing table on a daily basis - hooray!


  1. Birdies!! So cute!!

  2. Thank you for the mention - my tray is so happy to be famous!

  3. I've never made a pin cushion before. It kind of seems outdated but something I want to bring back. I usually store my pins in a box. Not very stylish of me, I know

  4. Cute! Do you prefer these pin cushions over magnetic ones?

  5. I store my pins in old Altoids boxes, because I need something that snaps closed so the little monsters don't tip them all over the floor. Again.
