Recycled cotton reel pin cushions

Aren't they cute?

I'm tired of losing needles when I put them down, or having to push them into my clothes or the tablecloth because my regular pretty pincushion is too big to carry around when I am sewing or beading on the go.

I also seem to go through a lot of thread, especially since much of it is inherited from my mother's store and the reels are partly used. I just hate tossing so many empty reels.

Here's my really fast solution. A piece of felt, a circle of colorful fabric and a small wad of polyfil.

I have a feeling all my friends who sew are going to get one.

I'm glad it's not just me that sticks pins and needles into my t-shirts!
I tend to forget they are there until I get a sharp stab in my booby!
Gorgeous dolls!
