How do you keep your sewing tools? Part 1

Things are moving very slow for the past few weeks. I have been coughing for more than 2 weeks. It's so bad that it kept me from wake in the night and this in turn made me feeling tired and lethargic in the day. Been to the doctor, much better but still coughing (when is it going to stop??!!)

Despite the large amount of awake hours, I didn't get much done. Mangaged to clear a bit of my sewing stuffs during one of the sleepless night.
Sewing pins in a small cute biscuit container (with pin cushion inside). I like how the pins can be easily kept away (just closed the tin) when it is not in use and I never get pricked when I reach out for the pins since I started using this.

To make this, all you have to do is make a big fat pin cushion and stuff it in a container (you can even use gluegun to fix it permanently, for me I just stuff it in). Just make sure that your pin cushion is slightly bigger than the container so that it won't shift when it's inside. And not to forget that your completed cushion will actually turn out smaller than the size of your cut out fabric when it is fatten/stuffed.

Too complicated? Need a tutorial? Just leave me a comment and let me know. Would love to know how you keep your pins too.

Will share more in the later posts.

Don't neglect persistent coughs. Check with the doctor to rule out the possiblity of asthma and pneumonia. Take care, LH.

Hi Pauline, try to drink some chuan bei powder day and night. It helps with cough esp bad cough. U can buy from any chinese medical hall or hock hwa. Get the better grade so that it's not so cooling and is better for body.

Wow... 3 months! That's really bad. I'm lucky that the cough has already subsided, but then followed by flu, which is now also almost gone :) said...

What a great ideas for a pin cushion. Very clever. Happy to have found your blog.
