    Those are both very pretty. I use a magnetic bowl for my pins, but would love to have a pin cushion like those. I think you have the right idea.

    Hummmmmmmmmmmmm, I love my magnetic tool parts bowls. However, I'd not be opposed to finding something to dress up the trays. as in maybe a fabric over!

    Those are such pretty pin cushions. I really liked them. Especially the one with flowers running down the top & side.

    Geri....no, I am not offering anything for sale~! I was looking for advise for a gift for a friend who sews, and decided to make her a pincushion. The links are just inspiration. I did find the original poster of the felt floral pincushion (in New zealand) and I am purchasing flowers from her...........I do a lot of embroidery and beading, so wish me luck! :-)

    You are more ambitious than I have time for. Congrats to you on making a great decision of following through with your first thought. Have fun in the process as she will surely enjoy the pincushion.
