Step 16.jpg I made some weighted pin cushions, and added a flange to store clips.  If you'd like to see the photo tutorial, I posted on my blog today.

I should really get (or make!) a pin cushion.  Fishing pins out of a plastic tub is getting old.

That's a really neat idea for the clips Linda.

What do you think of the other designs, with multi-flanges/seams to hold lots of clips?

But the little wooly worm is the cutest pin cushion holding a few pins on the machine;

Ooops--but I don't think it will protect against pin rash until there is a sturdy thick vinyl backing on little worm.

Mrs. D - I'm partial to the single-flange.  But that is just my taste. 😉 I bet a lot of people like the multi-flange.  I like the wooly worm too.

What about putting the flange along one of those sewn edges?   I love those weighted walnut shell pincushions and like the idea of a place for clips too.
