I have different types of pin cushions set all around my sewing room. Most of them were given as gifts and I use them all. I have four machines that I use and there's one for each machine and then one I keep just for my long glass head pins. Another for my flower pins and long pins for pinning to my design wall. I have a magnetic one as well that I can carry around the houes when I'm appliqueing all over the place. LOL I love the one that I have that is a combination pin holder and trash collector for threads. My quilting friends love the sugar bowl ones I give for gifts. Some use them for practical purposes, some don't. :)

June thanks for the link that is a neat idea. A great christmas gift idea too. LOL. I have never made a pin cushion but only because my MIL made me one when I first started sewing again and she put steel wool in it. It is just a simple one but I'm not parting with it.LOL. It'll probably hang around forever just because she was thoughtful and made it. LOL. I also use th e magnetic ones. Those new pin cusions that look like they are a jelly roll or something, anyone know what I am talking about? They look like they are made out of wool but they are all different colors and it looks like it's rolled up. Are those easy to make? I'm going to google it, I just didn't know if anyone had made one. :D

I know the ones you are talking about, Heather, and I love those -I think they are called Ewesful Pincushions - but I might be mistaken.

I would stuff a pincushion with wool, sawdust or sand.

Speaking of "EWE"sful pincushions and wool....
I live on a sheep farm...maybe I could grab a handful of wool next time I'm out! LOL!
(What do you think, Heather?)

Thanks for the link! I think I would prefer wool or sawdust for a filler, but I really like that pattern for a pincushion.
