A wraparound pincushion that fastens onto your sewing machine 
is the perfect way to keep pins in place and right at your finger tips.

Wraparound Pin Cushion How-To

1. Make a pattern: For length, measure the machine's circumference in a spot free of dials, then add 6.5cm.
Choose a width that suits the machine (about 7cm) and add 1.5cm.
2. Layer a piece of thick fabric (for the backing) and a piece of cotton or velour over two pieces of thin batting,
 all cut to fit dimensions.
3. Sew along three sides, leaving 1/2cm seam allowance.
Turn right side out, and top stitch around all four sides, 1/2cm from edge.
4. Sew strips of velcro to ends on opposite sides
