Being the "fly by the seat of my pants" sewer that I am I had rarely up until this year used pins when I was sewing. Having children has taught me patience and I attribute that to the reason why I was willing to giving pinning a chance - wow what a difference it makes! I know, it's pretty obvious that it would! A few months ago I attempted to make a pin cushion out of a baby food jar. You can see it on the left. It's so pathetic it makes me smile :) My issue with it though was that when I was sewing and taking pins out of it I'd just toss them on my sewing table. Not to safe for the littles in the house.
Then I saw this genius idea on..... drum roll please... PINTEREST!!! Ha ha, of course it was on Pinterest. It was a magnetic vintage dish! My version is the pretty new one on the right.
This project is crazy easy. Here's what you'll need:
- Vintage dish
- Strong magnets
- Hot glue
Throw your pins in, be amazed at how the stick and hold it upside down just to amaze yourself a little bit more.
Let me know if you try this out and shoot me a pic!
