Dr. DIYDanielle: Operation Pincushion!

I couldn't find any sewing needles so I pulled out all of the headed pins from my pincushion and decided to perform a slight operation on my pincushion to find all of the sewing needles I knew were burried inside. The green yarn unravels from around it easily, then I made a small snip at the top. I put the pins in a small bowl and the "guts" in another small bowl, then fished through for the needles.

My pincushion wasn't super fancy as you can tell. I was going to refill
it using a funnel and just sew it back up, but decided not to bother.
Of course, I got through all of that and there was how many needles? ONE. Where are the rest?! I must have put them somewhere "safe"... and how safe they are...

I was telling Daddy B I wish I had gotten one of those magnetic trays and he mentioned upcycling one of the old Glade Scented Oil burners that we haven't been using. Yay! Very easy. There was a Christmas plastic outer on it so I peeled that off and washed out the middle. Piece of cake!

Here's my new pincushion alternative. The magnet is pretty decent in it!
