A short while ago, I had to throw away my pincushion because it was falling apart. And life without a pincushion is unbearable for a seamstress. So, what else to do than make one myself or even better.... buy one at swiedebie at Etsy. She makes the most lovely felt pincushions you have ever seen. I fell in love with her sushi. She made it into a bracelet for me, and now I look like a real profi (that's what my neighboor friend said).
