    I recently bought a little bag that looks like it would come from this group. It has a weighted rectangular pincushion on one side, & a little bag for thread clippings, etc., on the other. Made to fit on/over the arm of the couch as i'm doing hand sewing. I love it! So convenient.

    I love to sew once in a blue moon and I would love everyone of these gifts.

    I made a wrist pin cushion last year and I love it.

    Here is a link to what I made:

    I'm half tempted to go shopping for myself....look at all that cuteness! I love the flower pincushions and the shrinky dink pins. How clever!
