We found this great project on one of our favorite blogs and were able to duplicate it using fabric scraps from our bin. Here is the link to the original project.
And here is our re-purposed version.
There were quite a few steps to this project but it wasn’t too difficult and the end result is so functional.
The pincushion is filled half full of rice so that it weighs down the pocket. The little basket is useful for collecting bits of thread and scraps of fabric while sewing.
