I’ve done it! My Sewing Room is organised to a Happy Point, the only thing that was left was my unhappiness while sewing. That bothersome annoying moment when you realise you left your pin cushion next to the sewing machine but you need it right now next to the ironing board.
“No more!” said I, and promptly made several pin cushions!
I started with my old faithful velvet square pin cushion which I stuffed into cute container I bought from an op shop several months ago. I imagine thing one will continue travelling around the room as it can hold the most pins.
Op shopping is fantastic for pretty and cheap one-off things. This plate was soooo pretty, but it had a chip on one corner. So I made a mini-pin cushion and hot-glued it over the chip! I can see this pin plate making the trip downstairs to the lounge quite often…
It now lives near one side of the ironing board. Next was this one, so cute like a button! It lives on the other side of the ironing board:
Next was this darling little espresso tea cup!
I don’t remember where I saw this but it’s such a good idea. The saucer is wonderful to catch things that don’t pin in. I’m collecting pretty plates to keep my priority buttons in sight too!
