    OMG... I just love this... Thank you very much!!! I live on a fixed income but have attempted to start quilting to make a few dollars here and there to help support my granddaughter. My son was killed 08/15/2010 in a motorcycle accident and he left behind a beautiful 9 month old daughter (at the time). I wanted to do something in memory of my son to try to help support her if at all possible, or start an education fund for her. This will definitely help with saving $$ on the projects that I work on. You're the best!!!

    That gives me an idea! I'm going to get some of the fine-grade steel wool, and use it to make a pin cushion!!
    Thanks!!

    What a terrific idea! Sure beats buying needles every couple of months. Because you have passed this tidbit onto us I am doing likewise with quilting friends, along with your instructions. Note to others: thin the roll of (fine) steel wool by unrolling it. It makes it easier stuffing into the bag plus getting it under the sewing machine needle later.

    To keep instructions with pictures close at hand (on my computer), I copied the contents of your post into a MS Word document. I also copied the URL address showing where the idea came from; it is in the header of the document. With the gift to friends, I'll include the instructions so they can pass onto their friends. Thank you - God Bless You!!

    His_Grace, super idea using in pin cushions - thanks for posting it (God's grace is sufficient). Recently, a friend and I made "owl pincushions" - I found the idea from another craft web site.
