There is nothing more handy than a pincushion to a sewer. My pincushion is a little house that was knitted by my mom.
Here are some other great pincushion ideas:
Clockwise from top left: Miss Mouse Pincushion handmade of rayon/wool blend by Catherinette. Fred the cute hedgehog by Strawberriesandcream. You have to go and check this shop out – Strawberriesandcream have elephant, rabbit and bird pincushions….and they are all as adorable. But… I have always wanted a hedgehog pin-cushion, I think it would be so fun to give him quills. This very cute Happy Hippo by Kawaii Ninja is only 3″ in length and 2.5″ in height making it a perfect pincushion. Jemma the owl by Craftzany makes a perfect muse and pincushion. I think she would look great perched on top of my sewing machine. What do you think? Each owl also comes with their own personality and story. Go and check them out. These beautiful white Swans are by lapomme and lastly, there is the Dahlia Bloom Tomato pincushion by Sushipie.
