No-look Pincushion

Want an easy way to remove and store pins without even looking up from your project? Cut a 3-inch by 5-inch piece of polar fleece, quilt batting, or doubled-over shoulder pad. Tie it onto the base of your sewing machine with trim or a shoelace. Soon you’ll wonder how you ever sewed without this pin-catcher!
