  • How do you make your own pin cushion?

  • Made my own pin cushion by rolling colored unwashed (leave the lanolin in) wool into a 6鈥?diameter snake. Once it鈥檚 felted, I sliced 4-5鈥?sections off, the put the flat side down and put my pins in the other side. The lanolin keeps the pins 鈥済reased鈥?and by putting them in and out of the wool, it also keeps them sharp.

  • Do You Put your pins in the wrapper?

  • might not quite get the fragrance, but if you leave the bar of soap in it鈥檚 wrappings the pins go through the paper easily and if/when you happen to drop the bar of soap, the 鈥渟hatterings鈥?will stay in the wrapper. no mess to clean up. easy to just toss in your sewing drawer if you don鈥檛 have room on the desk, too.
