    I was just thinking I need another one yesterday, I always tote mine room to room, and I love this idea! I can make a pretty one, instead of the utilitarian plastic looking ones I have.

    Loved your tute, when I was a little girl my mom belonged to our schools PTA and they use to make pincushions using empty tuna cans, covered with cloth and they used foam for the cushion part, I remember her sitting and making these at the dinning room table to take to the sales. They put all kinds of decorations on them. This brought back memories.

    I like yours because of the magnet, very clever. I will have to try one, thanks.

    You could also just use a cover, right? Cutting/covering cardboard/plastic for a base? Flat, slim. easy to carry...hmmmmm? Can it be done?

So I fashioned one from things I had around the house. I liked it so much, I made another one to keep on my cutting table. And since I was making another one I decided to share the process with QB today! It only took about half an hour to make it!

    Thanks for the great idea and tut! I will be making some of these as gifts as well.
    Don't worry about the typos. It shows how human we all are.
    Better to spend time on the sewing and crafts anyway.

    What an ingenious idea! The best part is you can recycle what you already have at home to make it and it seems fairly easy! Thanks for sharing!
