Sewing Machine Pin Cushion.

If you are like me, you always pin your fabric before sewing to make sure it won't slip or bunch as you sew. Well, I never had a convenient place to put a pin cushion so I could quickly remove the pins right before the needle went over them. I was always fiddling with the magnet 'pin cushions' and trying to get them as close to the machine as possible so I could quickly drop the pins and not loose my spot sewing.

So here is my solution...a quick tutorial on how to make a pin cushion to fit your machine that will tie right onto the arm of the machine and keep your pins close at hand.

Start a new thread and post your pin cushions. If possible tell us how you made them or give links for instructions.

My pins are steel in a container. I don't normally use them but I like the one that is connected to the machine.
