Because i have my Gkids here everyday, and they Love the "bubble" pins i needed something safe to keep my pins in. So this is what i came up with. A plastic container that snaps shut that i found at the dollar store. I made a mini pillow out of muslin and batting. Then because it was very lightweight i put a stone on the bottom with hot glue. With the white fabric i can see the pins and because it snaps closed i can take it anywhere and not lose my pins. Plus it keeps "little fingers" out of it!!!

Open when i need it
