My friend Naomi came over and we were chatting about the fabric flower she made sewing two half circles together. I thought it would be a lot quicker to use a full circle and just fold it over. So here goes.....

Wrist Pinkeep

Attach your sewing pins to your body and you’re pretty much guaranteed not to misplace them.
I’ve had pincushions on the brain after this post, so today I made a handy wrist pincushion. Simple to sew, it’s made from one fabric scrap, some filling and velcro. Easy! The measurements should be correct for an average sized woman’s wrist, but you can measure your own wrist and make necessary adjustments. The pincushion in the center takes up 3″ of space, so be sure to account for that. I thought about adding a cardboard piece to keep you from poking your arm with pins, but decided to leave that out as I found that I didn’t have any problems. But use caution!
Instructions are below. And if you make one of these, we’d love to see it! Add your photo to the Make it Monday Flickr pool here.
