THIS IS DANGEROUS. I COULD IMPALE MYSELF ON ONE OF THOSE PINS. THE WORLD SHOULD NOT HAVE TO SUFFER THE WHINING I WOULD INFLICT UPON IT.
I'm better now. Mini-fit notwithstanding, I needed some sort of pin corral. I have a pin cushion but it's in my sewing kit which is too bulky to keep on the table while I'm sewing. I love all the little pin jars and cushions on Pinterest but they all seemed like something I would just knock off the table, inflicting pain upon myself, and we're right back to mega-fit. So, I grabbed a little magnet and dressed it up with some acrylic paint:
Once it dried, I stuck it to my sewing machine dial. Really. That's the whole tutorial. Don't believe me?
See that? I didn't even need to glue it... it stuck using its own magnetic properties. Or it could be magic.
So now, as I'm de-pinning, I put the pin on the magnet. No injury, so simple, very handy... and the whining is saved for another day.
