    Pennies for your pincushion!

    Cute pincushion but scroll to the end to see how they use the pennies to weight it down so it won't "swim away!" Just another duh moment!!

    Another suggestion is to totally fill pincushion with Crushed Walnut Shells (available at Petstores) They add weight and the walnut oil is great for your pins and needles...
    Yes that is a real picture of my hometown Temecula, California. We feature premiere Wineries, World Class Golf Courses, Pechanga Indian Casino and Hot Air Balloons

    Adorable! I need to make one. I only have the store bought ones, except for the thread catcher one that I purchased from a board member.

    Very cute. I am printing it out right now. I wonder why they used pennies to weigh it down when they could have used the little glass rock things that are used to make the picture pretty. I have a ton of them I got at a yard sale.

    I don't know how much the glass beads cost, but the pennies are only 7 to 10 cents.

    The lips confuse me but maybe it will make sense when I make it?
